Want to see some before & afters?

I have decided to share some before and afters with my audience to show just what some good lighting, styling, creativity, and technical photography skills can do to a subject.

This is my typical set up.

I like to work with natural light streaming in through a window. The best window in my house happens to be the office window and I use a white tri-poster board to reflect the light back in to the set so it softens the shadows form being too harsh. It also creates neutral white "walls" in the background of the images.

I have all sorts of linens, props, and backgrounds available to style the shoot with, although you will see a bunch of them repeated in my images on the website. See if you can spot them reworked in varying ways : ) This is where my main creativity comes in to play. Then, there's a second and third round of creativity in the shot angles, followed by the editing and cropping process.

Here's the end result of this particular set up from the photos above:

Here's another before and after:

Transform basic ingredients into delicious images!

Notice how many different angles and details were captured with just one set up and a few added props.

A third example:

Here I turned a simple, boring cake slice into a mouth-watering spectacle.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some behind-the-scenes and before and afters of how my food photography images come to life. I will post more before and afters as they become available.
