I went to the LIFT at Jackson Hole, Wyoming to do some gourmet food photography.
The LIFT offers one of the best gourmet food service in the little town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I was lucky to shoot some of their gourmet dishes and had a luxury diner afterward with a great price as a part of my photo excursion with my Professional Imaging class, COMM 316.
Doing gourmet food photography is fun. We set up our LED lights and a few speedlight around the table and started shooting the restaurant’s gourmet courses once at a time. I used a couple of LED lights to shoot this images. Since, it was indoor and because it was raining outside we didn’t get a lot of natural light. I have my ISO at 400 and my aperture as low as I can to get a shallow depth of field. My shutter speed was around 1/100-1/125 to reduce camera shake while I was trying to find different angles to take the shots.
My roommates saw these images and they can’t wait to take a visit to the LIFT. Check out this blog by Melody Fury for some more inspiration for more gourmet food photography inspiration
Here are some of the images I took of these beautifully garnished dishes:
