Situated at the town centre, the Scott's Pub & Restaurant was once known as the "Tavern". It has now been fitted with English country house furniture, with an ambient that resembles that of a hunter's cabin deep in the woods.
We had lunch there and I seized the opportunity to grab a couple of shots.
This particular Christmas photo shoot for Mercato was in fact executed along side the food photography done for Cold Storage's Christmas edition as detailed in the previous post. Some items have to be reused for both these publications, so it was just a simple matter of changing props and setting.
Could I have done it any better? Perhaps, but as my very first major food photography commercial project, I have to say, I have met my expectations, though I feel I could have done much better.
After the product catalogue's cover shot I did for Mercato's Christmas edition, I went on to photograph the designated food items on promotion for Cold Storage. All these were done sometime back in early November.
As a food lover myself, not only do I get to enjoy eating my "models" after work, I get to enjoy the process of food styling as well.
On a moment's notice, the prospect of sleeping in on a beautiful Saturday morning was once dashed, when I was required to do a food shoot. The photography session was to be held at Silver Spoon Trattoria, a casual Italian restaurant located at Bandar Menjalara.
The first few items were cocktail drinks, shot simply on the restaurant's dining table, against the backdrop of a similar colour/texture food store room's door, followed by a couple of food dishes which included some pizza.
