Food Photography Tutorial, Behind The Scenes: working with monorail camera in studio
Food Photography Tutorial: workflow of the real shot
This was a 4 hour long session where we started with a very vague idea of what we wanted and how the shot would appear in the end. Everything was developed on the fly, while shooting. The idea behind this tutorial was to show you a real shooting process in our studio, when it goes creatively, without strict requirements as to how the end result should appear. We experimented with composition and spent a lot of time trying things around.
This is not something I do often, but from time to time I do “free format” shots like this to let new ides and techniques develop in our brains.
The outcome from the photo-session:
Below is a recorded video (over an hour) of this product photography tutorial, and will guide you through each step of creating this image. I also explain what kind of light modifiers can be used to achieve this look in product shots.

This is what you need to avoid: bad looks pieces of food. Where is my stylist on the shot?
