Another restaurant, another menu! Are nachos Irish?

Same gig as before, solving the challenges of food and location photography--this time Murphy's Grand Irish Pub at 30th and Pacific in Virginia Beach.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, these are for a specialty publication that is currently in layout. No models to pose, but there is the challenge of trying to make food look good. So many things to consider: lighting, of course, shadow, texture, color (of course), angle of view. Still learning, but food photography definitely requires both skill and patience. The food for this layout was shot using LED lights with a combination of filters to balance between the available light in the bar and what I brought. I could have done the same thing with speedlights and CTO, but wanted to live the LEDs a try.
