Everyone wants a magic shoot. You know what I mean. The photos and subject (food) look good without any effort. Except there really is effort. The food is fresh, authentic, neat, and amazing. With food photography, the devil is in the details. Always. For the shoot I am about to show you, there was a generous and engaged crew working on the food and paying attention to every detail. The “look” is right for the business. In this case, we went with natural light and the cucoloris shadows from a window box garden on the shooting table. This was artistically brilliant for a restaurant that is all about its outdoor community gardens.

I loved the way we all worked on the hero shot to show the food, love, and community!

Here is a photo of their beautiful gardens nestled in the Bayview community of San Francisco. 

Check out a few of the hightlights. This is a project I am doing for Forest Design.
