Behind The Scenes At The Photo Shoot
Here’s a behind the scenes look at the photo shoot we did for these blueberry pancakes. It was a full day of blueberry recipes. Yum!Yes, it takes a village to do a photo shoot! Our team consisted of the photographer, food stylist (yours truly), food styling assistant, several PR account representatives and, of course, the client. A photo shoot day is a lot of work but I love being “on set”, especially when the team is as great as this one! We have music playing in the back ground which sets the mood for everyone’s creative juices to flow.When the client cannot be at the photo shoot, the shots are sent to the client for approval before moving onto the next recipe. Everyone adds their expertise at a photo shoot. We each have something to contribute to the final composition of the shot making it the best it can be.A prop stylist gets the set ready with the surface, dishes, silverware and other props while I get the “hero”, or the “beauty” as it is sometimes called, ready for the camera. For this shot we decided to do an action shot pouring the syrup over the pancakes so I had backup pancakes ready for multiple takes.
