New Column! Ask A Food Photo Question!

by Matt on August 16, 2012

Oh you guys, thank you! The response to the announcement about my new book has me smiling like you wouldn’t believe…thank you! The tweets and facebook posts are greatly appreciated and I really do hope you like this book!

September 15th is the big day, but in the meantime I thought I’d kick off a column called “Ask A Food Photo Question”.  Anything stumping you? Struggling with color balance? Want to know how to build a prop library? Post-processing snafus? How do you produce a food shoot? Send it my way! And since I’m not the expert on all things of all things, if I don’t know the answer I will reach out to my network of amazingly talented photographers and get the question answered just for you.

My goal is to answer a few questions in blog posts on a regular basis, so feel free to send your questions to me here and check back. Oh, and if I have any visual examples I’ll include them when appropriate.

I’m all ears!

This is awesome and I can’t wait for your book :).

OK, so I live in Seattle (enough said) in a West facing house with a dark kitchen. I am scared of summer being over and the dark days returning. Any tips on shooting with artificial light or working with with the grey skies?

Hi! I shared this link on Photo Styling Workshops Facebook page. Hope you don’t get TOO many requests!

I’d love to learn more about props and how you choose what you do. When I used to look at food layouts, I was perplexed at the credit, “Prop styling by…”. But the more I’ve observed, the more I realize how important the *right* props are. It’s just something I, as a viewer, have taken for granted. The props are always just… well, right. The food is what you see, but the props are, what would you say, the supporting cast?
Please, tell us more.

Ooooh – a friend just sent me to your website. It’s brilliant. I definitely want to build a decent prop library but have no idea where to start!
