Biting off more than I can chew? Does anyone know of a crash course in food photography. I've been invited to photograph a lobster boil dinner at a fine dining bar/restaurant. I promise I will share pics in this post after the event. Most of my experience has been with outdoor photography (mostly automotive) But I jumped at the chance to add something different to my portfolio. I'm getting paid with dinner and the shots will be used for promotions/newsletters. I'm a little stressed because this is out of my element, but at least, I will have fun! (GEAR) I have canon rebel xti a 18-55 3.5f and a 75-300 4.0f tele/marcro, circular polarizer filter, stock pop up flash and tripod. I'm mostly comfortable in M mode and TV mode and I'm curious if the AV mode will be handy. The photo shoot time is 6-9pm sun set is at 8pm. Natural will be at a minimum after 7pm, The bar faces west and the dinning room faces east over looking Lake Michigan. Not sure what the owner will want me to photo. Food presentation I'm sure will be handled by them. Right now, I think one main thing I may need will be a flash diffuser if I use the flash at all. I've thought about renting an external flash, but I have never used one and I don't want to create a disaster or be distracted, but it is an option. I still need to create my shot list. Any help or direction will be greatly appreciated! Now, off to edit some 2009 Nissan GTR photos, Thanks!
