    They just sent $931.84 for the pics in US and People. Not too bad since I am getting half of what was paid by the mags!

    It took them a year to pay but they came through and got top dollar.

    If you ever get celebrity photos and want to make some $$ send them to

    www.thesnitcherdesk.com

    and they will end up in the taddlers. It took about 4 days after I submitted for them to be in a major gossip rag. One pic, I tried to sell to people and they refused it and then they bought and ran a worse pic a week later from snitcherdesk. (I think the mags would rather work with an agency that an individual.)

    edit:

    Woohoo! It just appeared in my bank account. I guess I'm a professional now!

    Default Food Photography

    So.. whats the secret behind food photography?

    I'm part owner of a company and one of the divisions of the company is restaurant consulting. Part of the restaurant consulting division is menu development. (if you're interested, you can see the restaurant consulting's website at Alpha Omega Restaurant Solutions)

    Well.. one of the part owners of my company is being really stingy about this, and is taking his own food photography for the clients. He is NOT a professional photog... He sets up his lights, goes to the restaurant, and comes back... however, I don't like any of the photos. They're soft focus, and the food just doesn't look too appetizing. Its my job to put them into menus so the client can say, "I like that, go to print with that.. order 10,000" or whatever.

    So I go into the menu design (or rather, I design the menu's) for proofing for the client. Well... like I said, I don't like the photography at all.

    Here are some of the photos he took:






    Anyway...

    So what are the secrets to making this look right and making it look appetizing? Glenn... I love your still life stuff, and I really like the pepper you just did.

    Is it equipment? (I think my "partner" (although I own 25% of the company and he owns 8%) is using a Canon Rebel XT)

    Is it a lens thing?


    And how much would it cost to get someone to shoot food professionally?(Or at least to shoot better than my partner is shooting...) I'm just concerned about the product that we're putting out. My end is nice (I take pride in my menu designs), but if the photos are not too hot, it lowers the overall look.

    It looks like the lighting on the food is flat. You want to get light coming from the sides at different intensities to make it more 3-d looking like it's coming out of the page. Glenn's shot has light on the top of the pepper with NO light on the bottom which is a little extreme for a plate of food but makes the pepper pop.

    It's all about the lighting ratios.
