I just finished a large shoot for the Terrebonne Parish Tourism Board and wanted share some of the experiences. More often than not food photography is about just making it work no matter what the situation throws at you. Myself and the art director / graphic designer set out to look for a location to shoot the cover of a food brochure for the Tourism Board. We had a few ideas between us, but stumbled on a location that we thought would be fitting. It was a nice restaurant in downtown Houma, La. The owner graciously agreed and planning began. We settled on very nice back dinning room as the final location for the set. Originally the shot was going to take place in afternoon sunlight, but a few things got in the way and it turned into a night shoot. I think the ambiance in the final shot turned out great. I love how food photography manages to keep me excited about my daily work. This is one of the shots taken that night.
