Food Photography || Fall Dishes

Food photography has become increasingly popular especially for social media sites. If you’re looking to brush up on your food photography skills, there are a few things you should know. Here at the Montage Laguna Beach, food photography is vital to marketing new, and flavorful dishes.

The presentation of the dish is the most important to perfect prior to photographing. A colorful dish with depth and variety will bring a dynamic look. Creating a dish with different textures and layers will add to the depth when you begin photographing. It’s also important to pay attention to the cleanliness of the dish itself surrounding the food.

Placement is key in food photography. This includes placement of the food on the plate as well as the placement of the entire dish. Where the food sits on the plate as well as the type of plate will affect the photo drastically. Using spoons, eye-drops, etc to place sauces can significantly help the overall appearance. At the Montage Laguna Beach, chefs use tweezers and eye drops to place food/sauces, leaving your dish flawless.

When choosing where to place the entire dish, think of the lighting that will best work for the type of dish. Do you need romantic lighting or bright and colorful? Take notice of the colors of your dish and try to set it next to something that will make the colors standout.

Since food is an inanimate object, bringing life and movement to the photo is unique and beautiful. Capture a photo of soup being poured, or spices being sprinkled. Movement will bring your food alive and allow for a unique shot.

Next time your at a restaurant, snap a quick picture and see if you can bring these tips alive. Or if you have a corporate event, leave it to us to capture the spirit of your evening.

We absolutely love capturing the memories of family vacations and beautiful weddings. However, that is not all that we offer for services here at Pacific Dream Photography. Allow us to tell you more about our Corporate Photography.

Very often, we are also part of company's incentive programs or meetings in a beautiful place away from the office. As photographers, it is a pleasure to see hard-working individuals let loose and having fun in a different environment.

For a company, it's an opportunity to recognize your company’s employees and commend them on their hard work and the commitment they bring to the team. Whether it is an elegant awards ceremony or treating them to a fun-filled day of zip-lining, our team of photographers will be there to commemorate the well-deserved celebration of your successes.

Allow us to capture the emotion of an award being received, your colleagues and their spouses enjoying the beauty of a Hawaiian sunset, or the laughter that comes with a co-worker being pulled on stage by a Hula performer.... "Who knew Bill from Customer Service could shake it like that?"  

You and your team will be utterly thankful for having photographic proof of it.
