Overview

Food photographers and stylists share a common goal: to make their subject appealing, appetizing, and natural looking. Designing food for the camera requires special techniques for visually enhancing the subject. This beautifully photographed and informative book is the first to give specific instructions on how to create mouthwatering images of all types of food, including drinks, poultry, pizza, ice cream, and pastries. Case studies, featuring the work of fifteen top food photographers, focus on different food types and such special effects as spritzing, splashing, pouring, and flaming. For each case, the process is described from start to finish by two experts. First, the author, a successful food stylist and designer, explains in detail how he prepared a dish or drink to create just the right consistency and color for the assignment. Then the photographer discusses, step-by-step, the lighting and techniques that were used to achieve the final photograph. Every stage is illustrated with production shots of the work in progress, and each study concludes with a complete breakdown, or recipe, of how the food was created and styled for the camera. With its superb examples of diverse styles of food photography, Food Photography and Styling is a feast for the eye as well as a much-needed guide for anyone involved in this specialty. It is also required reading for editors, writers, and art directors of cookbooks and food magazines.
