Last month, I had a shoot with a local produce company, which was fun because unlike my normal restaurant food photography (which I still loooooove to do), this was shooting a bunch of food at a factory (with a wet floor), making it not look like a factory, and making things look artful while working in a giant refrigerated space (ohmygod my fingers got so cold!).
First, let me say that I could not have done this without the amazing styling help of the wonderful and talented Lucy. She was polishing grapes, selecting the best looking cauliflower and setting up all that color and texture in just the right way. Plus, she’s an angel to work with. We’ve been teaming up a lot lately (which I’ll talk about more at a later date), and this was a super fun collaboration.
But besides these pretty food shots, I also snapped some “behind the scenes” shots of the factory. You guys, I cannot express how cold it was in there. I was miserable after just an hour, and I now have so much more respect and love for the pre-cut watermelon I buy at the grocery store. Below are some of those images.
