Say Cheese!

We are redoing the catering menu and wanted to get some shots of some of the catering foods that we sell. A team of us met at the studio and spent the day setting up the perfect shots to compliment our food. I haven't received the final professional copies of our photos yet, but I took these with my camera. I'm sure there will be some touching up and editing in the final version, but I was pretty happy with these as they are.

It's always fun working with the food stylists-- you wouldn't believe how much work goes into taking just 1 picture. We only did 2 pictures yesterday and it took us about 8 hours. I didn't get a copy of the breakfast platters picture. In that one, we had breakfast sandwiches (bacon/egg/cheese, etc.). The food stylist actually used a small pair of scissors to trim the eggs into the perfect size and shape. I won't even go into how long it took them to make a fruit platter! Each piece had to be trimmed to the perfect dimensions.

The pictures I am showing today are of the Power Breakfast (scrambled eggs, rosemary potatoes, white cheddar grits, turkey bacon, chicken sausage and biscuits). I really love the closeup shot, because it contains all of the foods in one picture, without the distraction of the tablecloth and chafing racks.

This will be a great tool and it's got to increase sales. When I suggest a Power Breakfast and can show a picture of it, I think it will sell itself! I'll post the edited copies when I receive them.
