Behind the Scene, Treasures For Pleasure...
To have food photographed, sometimes I need other preparation work to be done, prepare the background, hoping the sun shining during a photo session; is this some kind of preparation ? Well this is the fact of such amateur food photographer with low budget like me, or sometimes I eventually prepared a table light with scrunched foil for reflector. Other preparation is to have props ready. This post is about props for my food photography, check my story...
Apart being foodtographiaholic, I like to entertain my friends, I think that where this hobby started, to get the good coordinate of one kind of dinnerware, kinda exciting stuff to do until you just realize deep down in your cabinet, there is new homeware store open in your hidden kitchen.
My biggest collections so far is brand came from corelle, with the kids around, this brand really heavy duty. Called me mad, yes ! There are lot more from this brand, but they already sit nicely in my home country. The one on the picture are style that available here in my kitchen. They've taken for food photography, as they went straight to dinning table after photo session.
Okay...this post also about the un-coordinate one, the one not coming in a set like 4 or 6, the one which doesn't even have a pair, un-matching pattern. Yes I do keep them, for food photography purpose... hell no... I keep them for display too ^_^
They are really nice to have, feast the eyes and pleasure for food photography. They are just 1 or 2 pieces . But handy enough to make a good setup for food photography.
I don't fancy with one color, as long as I like it go ahead.
Some of them are gift from friends.
The one from flea market, straight to my treasure box.
These set above was not coming from expensive store, but they give huge impression on the picture, with their natural colors.
The background are coming from my craft room, scrapbook papers, the one on the middle is another treasure from Mochachocolata Rita, from the event of Chinese Take Out Party. Thanks Rit !
Finally, this post is my submission for Home Food Photography Event, Property, hosted by Dita over Yummy.
