Foods to Photograph



Food Food

Foods Photography St Louis

I love photographing foods of anything.   There are so many creative options but I especially love shallow depth of field.

Shallow depth of field :

allows parts of the image to have a lovely blurry feel.  This allows the focus to fall on the part of the image you want the eyes to stay on.  Shallow depth of field can only be achieved with high quality lenses that can shoot at 2.8 or larger.  Cheaper lenses cannot go beyond 3.2 at best and then the images are soft.  Most mid priced lenses are sharp at 4 or 5.6f.

The beauty of a L series Canon lens or Nikon V series lenses is that they stay sharp even at f1.2.  You pay a premium –  $2500 vs $800-  for the ability to photograph in any number os conditions.

Planes in the Trees Series

Planes Planes Planes Planes Planes Planes Planes Planes Planes Planes Planes Planes Planes

I was walking through Richmond Park while visiting my parents in London, UK.

Planes fly directly over the park to Heathrow-  one of the busiest airports in the world.

A plane every 45 seconds.

Occasionally I would glance up and catch a view of a plane between the tree the branches.   There was a surreal look to the planes caught in the branches.

This is the series from the day walking in the park.

Processional Wedding Pictures

Photographing the Processional

Processional Picture Processional Wedding Pictures have an immediate impact.

The couple are seconds into their union-  husband and wife.

It is seconds into a process that for some has started years before. The Processional.

The release of emotions at the moment of the processional is spectacular.

This is a must have shot that all wedding photographers must get-  it’s on par with the kiss.

Capturing it is pretty easy to with the right gear.

A zoom is preferable because of the low depth of field and the ability to flatten the background.  This will help keep the focus on the subject.

A word of Caution.  You will be walking backwards.  So please be extra careful you dont trip or bang into something.  I have seen so many Youtube videos of photohs walking backwards and falling into something.

I love the various reactions you will get from the couple. They are either making contact with certain people in the church-  a wave or handshake, or they are stealing occasional glances at each other.

Regardless of what they are doing –  they are always beaming with joy.  These reactions are priceless.

These are tremendous pictures your clients will love.
