Each month I am luckily enough to shoot a column for Feast Magazine called What We’re Buying. The column focuses on a variety of products from a variety of different manufacturers that tie-in together as a theme. In the April issue, the focus was on spring and gardening, so the art director and I set about creating a quaint country potting shed … in my downtown urban studio.
Working as a food photographer for food magazines often means that I end up doing a lot of food and beverage-related product photography as well. While this includes modest shots of packaging, it also sometimes includes more complex shots. For the May issue of Feast magazine, I was tasked with the job of photographing the Riedel Eve Wine Decanter. This thing is totally a thing of beauty … and completely impractical for every-day use. It’s so complicated to use, in fact, that the manufacturer has a YouTube video on how to use the thing.
