At The Image Factory we often have promotions & at the moment we are offering a FREE food photography test shot to any local restaurants, pubs, cafes etc. Last week The Mirchi, Stoke on Trent asked us along to photograph one of their dishes. The owner Kishore showed us around so we could choose an area in which to do the shot & then introduced us to the chef so we could discuss what it was he was making & the dishes to serve it in. The smell of all the spices coming from the kitchen made it a little difficult to concentrate it was so lovely but soon we were set up & ready to go. Together we came up with the image featured here which we thought gave a good impression of the food served at The Mirchi & the warmth of the environment. As a rule we usually photograph food in a slightly less busy way, maybe from above with some utensils etc & using a shallow depth of field to give that soft focus feel, but as always we listen to the client & give them what they want first.
