To be honest, I almost didn't do a VEDA today for several reasons, none of which are very important but I stepped up and held up my promise. I might have been in a crabby mood because I was sporting a headache and decided to make myself a couple of eggs. So the following video is a quick glimpse into how I typically shot food snap shots. I often get asked what I use and how I frame the photos. Ideally, a photo box is the best thing to use but I tend to improvise with what I have at my disposal. The fan/light above the stove is pretty versatile for me when I cook because it requires no additional setup. The photo above is on my kitchen table with the overhead low energy lighting and nothing else special. Only editing was a crop of the original image because I was using two cameras at the same time and did not effectively focus the image.
Have any questions? Just ask and I will be happy to help with anything I can.
