Food Photography: Onion With Pastry Cutter


Continuing my project but changing a few things…I hope you enjoy the post! 🙂

Behind the scenes.

For this picture I used a blue and a black board on each side. I used the black board to stop the light from falling onto the subject (on the left), while the blue board added some colour on the reflection (on the right).

NIKON D800, 80mm lens, aperture ƒ/8, speed 100s,  I SO 100.

  1. I miss shooting still life inside my (cabin) studio. It is almost impossible now due to space restriction of my cabin and of course the rough weather of the north sea.
    Anyway, just wanna ask your light source? Great capture by the way. Love the black and blue contrast.

    1. Thank you Nino! I remember the space on board, it’s so restricted! I generally use two studio flash lights (or one depending on what I am taking pictures of)…I have a spare room at home that I use as a studio. Also natural light is very good for food photography, but I generally prefer using artificial lights so that I don’t have any kind of restrictions.
