food photography in Zhuhai

30 Mar 2023 Zhuhai, China

At first glance, it may seem like food photography is an easy task. After all, you just need to take pictures of food, right? However, the truth is that food photography is a challenging and demanding field that requires a lot of skill, creativity, and patience. Capturing an appetizing image of food requires a deep understanding of lighting, composition, color, and texture. Additionally, food photography involves many technical challenges, such as dealing with the reflection and glare of shiny surfaces or making sure that the food looks fresh and appetizing. It's not just about taking a picture; it's about creating a visual story that showcases the food in the best possible way. So, while it may look easy, food photography is a true art that requires a lot of hard work and dedication to master.

Don't ask me why we ask for up front payment before any photography commission in China

Why you paid up front in McDonald's???

Here more and more KOL teaching people how to cheat for free photography in the social networks and here is just two examples.

Here is the translated version of one methord by google.

"Teach you a few tips for taking free photos. Did you find out? Some independent photographers on Xiaohongshu have taken good photos, but the prices are not very friendly. But no one’s money comes from the wind. I’ll give it to you today Here are a few tips from Jimei for taking pictures for free, so that everyone can easily get beautiful pictures for free Is it okay? Lin may agree with a photographer who is very congenial and soft-hearted. He may also gain a long-term cooperative friendship ~ (if the other party is fierce, just say that he is joking Dagou) and then remember to look for a photographer with an exaggerated style There is the biggest gap between the original film and the p-picture of this kind of photography by the teacher. In this way, after receiving the original film, you can refuse to pay the final payment on the grounds that it is too different from your imagination~ Meimei took the original picture to find Xiaohongshu Isn’t it good to retouch pictures for five yuan? At the end of the camp, if you are going on location, you can prepare a fake medical record in advance (believe in a certain Baoyu who is omnipotent)~ The question is that you suffered from heatstroke/frozen/bitten by mosquitoes when taking pictures. The method is also a way of refusing to pay the final payment. The photographer must be responsible for the injury caused by taking pictures"

Shame on Chinese smart!

New gear tripod head for food photography

Gear tripod head

26 Mar 2023 Zhuhai, China

If you're serious about food photography and want to take your skills to the next level, investing in a high-quality tripod head can make a big difference in the quality of your images. A tripod head is the component that attaches your camera to the tripod legs and allows you to make precise adjustments to the camera's position and orientation. With a gear tripod head, you'll have even more control over your camera's movements, which can help you achieve the perfect shot every time.

A gear tripod head typically features three adjustable knobs that allow you to move the camera up, down, left, and right with precision. This is particularly useful for food photography, where you may need to adjust the camera angle and composition multiple times to get the perfect shot. With a gear head, you'll be able to make these adjustments quickly and easily, without having to readjust the tripod legs.

In addition to its precise control, a gear tripod head is also typically more durable and stable than other types of tripod heads. This is important when working with heavy camera equipment or in situations where you need to ensure your camera is stable and secure, such as when shooting in low light conditions or using slow shutter speeds.

Overall, if you're serious about improving your food photography, investing in a new gear tripod head is definitely worth considering. Not only will it make your workflow more efficient and precise, but it will also help you achieve better results and take your photography to the next level.

Hard light food photography is a technique used by photographers to create images with a high level of contrast and sharpness. It involves using a small, intense light source to illuminate the subject, resulting in deep shadows and bright highlights. This approach can bring out the texture and detail of the food, highlighting its natural beauty and making it look more appetizing. Hard light can also create a dramatic mood, adding depth and interest to the image. However, this technique requires careful control of the light source and its placement, as well as attention to the composition and styling of the food. With skillful execution, hard light food photography can produce stunning and memorable images that capture the essence of the dish and the experience of enjoying it.
