Food photography have to be done near the chef’s kitchen, usually in a restaurant setting, because is very difficult to recreate in a studio all the facilities needed for cooking.
In this type of photography speed is essential because a lot of dishes need to be very fresh for good shots.
The planning stage should include the style of the images and the props which will be included in the images. An experienced stylist will be a great help for the final shots.
Beverage photography can be much more spectacular in location, where a suitable atmosphere can be created more easily. The cocktails need to be photographed very quickly to avoid any changes in their look.
