I'll be traveling for the next 24 hours so I may have to miss a day of photos, but I'll be back soon!

a day in the studio

I am in the middle of a big food-catalog shoot right now and I thought I'd give you a glimpse into the action.

The catalog showcases food for the holidays so I pulled some props ahead of time that fit that look.

A shot of the set. This particular shot went through many incarnations-- this one being the first. It ended up requiring a lot of tweaking and some piecing together of multiple products to make the perfect one for the photo.

I wanted a warm look to the shots and somehow misplaced my gold reflector but my awesome assistant rigged up this super cool make-shift warm-toned reflector! It cast a lovely golden tone on the subject, just as I had hoped it would.

Shoots like these, which deal with packaged and frozen food, require a LOT of product. Here is a shot of SOME of it.

trying something new

This is a photo blog, right? I mean, I am a photographer after all. And yet I psych myself out with creating blog posts, trying to think of the perfect thing to say when, in actuality, I should just be posting more photos. So that's what I am going to do.
From now on, I am going to try and post a photo every day. I'll still do my longer posts, too, but I'm going to try to keep the rest of my posts short and sweet, and all about the picture.

So here we go.
