Behind the Scenes: Olive Bruschetta Setup

|, Blog, Food, Photography|Behind the Scenes: Olive Bruschetta Setup

Here’s the behind-the-scenes setup from yesterday’s “Olive and Goat Cheese Bruschetta” photograph. I used the North-facing window in my condo (much easier to do food photography when next to a kitchen!), set the food on a hand-painted/distressed “table”, and used a large 5-in-one reflector (silver side) to add some fill. Pretty simple setup, really. :)

Camera: Canon 7D
Lens: 70-200mm f/4L IS
Aperture: f/5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/8 second
ISO: 100

    Eating easier than photographing.

    I’ve been looking through your blog trying to get ideas on how you light your food shots. I have been playing with food photography more lately to trying and get better food shots for my wife’s blog. http://www.lovingsimpleliving.com. It has been really helpful to look through your behind the scenes posts and see how it all works.

    Hi there. Like the setup and your website.

    What stand are you using to hold to the reflector? It looks like a C-stand but which particular model?

    Thanks

    Joe

      I don’t recall the exact type … I don’t use it too much anymore and don’t currently have it on hand. However, I think it’s one that ships along with the 5-in-1 reflector, something similar to this:
