One for the pot – Food photography in Kent

It’s not everyday that a lobster that was meant to be sleeping (after being in the freezer) decided to wake up mid-shot, thrashing it’s tail around knocking the ice off the table. All in a day’s work! This was during a location shoot of a series of images for Le Petit Poisson. Although you can shoot some types of food with just natural light and reflectors – editorial style – it’s not always the brief to have shallow depth of field and a styled rustic kitchen location and boho chic crockery. These shots were with 2 lights and a number of layers of diffusion with no natural light at all – high contrast for a new website.
