Get ready to dive into the behind-the-scenes world of our latest seafood portfolio shoot! This shoot was all about creating those drool-worthy images that make our taste buds dance. So buckle up as we embark on this fresh, innovative, and collaborative adventure together.
I called my fellow friend and colleague, Kristina Wolter from Girl Gone Grits, and invited her to collaborate on a portfolio shoot. Picture this: our studio is buzzing with energy, creativity, and laughter! Anytime we collaborate it’s a good time. One word to describe this shoot? Fresh. We used as many fresh ingredients as possible to highlight the seafood.
For this shoot, we were heavily inspired by classic art greats like Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Edgar Degas, and Diego Velasquez from the Baroque period. For this shoot we wanted to focus on the dramatic colors, deep tones and intense shadows.
We wanted to show different textures in the photo, so we used large grains of sea salt, emphasizing the fish skin texture by bouncing light on the tilapia. Since the fish already has lots of natural details, we kept the composition simple. Although we wanted to focus on deep tones, it was important to add a pop of color with a few lemon slices.
I hope you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes journey of our portfolio shoot! We’re committed to maintaining a fresh, innovative, and collaborative approach to food photography. Thank you Kristina for another amazing shoot!
