Food Photography in Kent’s Coast – Le Petit Poisson Herne Bay

Le Petit Poisson is situated almost right on Herne Bay’s beach, by the old pier. I had a great lunch there a few weeks ago and so was pleased to return for a short shoot just before the start of their lunch service. I’m not a fish person, but I devoured a perfectly cooked Sea Trout and Braised Brill. Check it out

Technical stuff – the room shot to the front was cross-lit by bare-bulbing 2 flash heads to create a pool of light (this was rather than simply adding fill to the darker part of the room). I wanted shadows through the railings and chair legs. The dishes were shot with a single softbox from one direction, snoot and some silver reflective material as and when required.
