Book Description

Creating mouth-watering food images requires more than just a love of food and access to a kitchen. With the popularity of food blogs and photography how-tos, it’s tempting to think that anyone can photograph food, but it’s another thing entirely to shoot for a tight ad layout with the pressure of your client watching over your shoulder.

Commercial food photographer Teri Campbell has been called a “lighting master,” and in this beautifully illustrated book, he not only shares his detailed lighting set-ups and shooting techniques for a wide range of food and drink shots, but also offers candid advice on how to set up a studio, use the right equipment, market your work, find clients, bid on assignments, hire food and prop stylists, and communicate effectively with everyone on the set.

Campbell shares his expertise on dozens of commercial assignments–from shooting beignets on location in New Orleans, to creating perfect ice tea pours, to photographing beans on real flames in his studio. Learn how he creates dynamic compositions, uses studio strobes, and arranges light diffusers, reflectors, fill cards, and mirrors, to create the perfect capture. Campbell also discusses his post-processing techniques in Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Photoshop to create images that are irresistible.

This guide for intermediate and advanced users provides the insider details to help you expand your photography skills or turn your passion for food and images into a professional career.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 21 Feb. 2013
By Alison
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had high hopes for this book but in the end I found the methods quite dated. I've been a commercial photographer for many years and few people I know actually work this way.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best food photography book ever. 10 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is much more than a classic food photography lessons book. It has everything you need to know to run a successful food photography studio.

Great book if you intend building a purpose made studio just for photographing food. Tips on invoicing your customers was useful. The method of photography I thought was rather dated and safe, Quite a lot of post production and the use of non food ingredient. Very client led. Not much help if you have to visit your client, and fix up lighting and arrange food on their premises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Food Photography and Lighting 21 May 2014
By Casper
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is fantastic if you have a desire to photograph food! There are very several lighting set - ups which really work well.
I would recommend this to anyone with this interest. There is a wealth of ideas from a man responsible for photographing global brands shown in the book. Excellent!

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money - don't buy this book 12 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
save your money and don't buy this book, it is so out of date for food photography, so much is photoshopped, and not really relevant to the modern food photography styles of today. I really regretted buying this book, a complete waste of my money.
