Today I’d like to invite you to participate in a dPS reader workshop. We’ve done a few of these in the past and they’ve always been fun. In short we take a reader submitted question and throw it open for some discussion in the comments below.
Todays question is from one of our regular readers – Gary and he’d love your advice on photographing a friends cafe (coffee house). Here is his question:
Dear Darren – I’ve been asked to photograph my friends cafe (a quaint little coffee house) which is opening later in the week. They want some good shots of the cafe and some dishes that they can use in promotional materials, their Facebook page and for press releases. I’m experienced at taking portraits – but interiors and food photography are a little out of my comfort zone. I wonder if you or your readers might have any suggested starting tips for me?
OK – what advice would you give Gary? Your tips on both photographing the cafe itself as well and/or some food photography tips would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to suggest the type of shots that might work, lighting tips, composition tips, mistakes the avoid etc.
Over to you!
