Time to shoot the chef
Photographically, obviously! (poor joke I know)
I’d previously been commissioned to photograph the beautiful new bedroom suits at The Bedford Lodge Hotel. I’d also taken some nice shots of the food but this visit was for the man himself, the talent behind this awesome food.
Working in the kitchen with chef and his team was a challenge. Hot, cramped and crazy busy. So the gridded softbox I love to use so much was left outside. All I had was a single speedlite which I positioned on the huge central extractor using a magic arm clamp.
White balance was all over the place so i set it to fluorescent and worked mainly in manual. Really happy how they came out.
The portraits were shot with 2 lights, big mama and a gridded stripbox.
