Food Product Photography – Eggs Chips Peas

by

During this weekend I decided to create a still life photography composite using Photoshop. This is a personal work project and primarily because I wanted to experiment with the Nikon D810 in a studio environment.

I created a few sketchy ideas and soon headed into my kitchen in search of potential props that I could use for my mini project. I photographed all of the elements under the same lighting using my Elinchrom studio lights and a few reflectors to help bounce light into areas of deep shadow. I have to say I’m extrememly satisfied with the Nikon D810 (which I used for this project) and shooting with such a camera is an absolute pleasure.

On top of the egg surface I considered using almost any kind of graphic (drawings of eyes, random sketches, typography effects, cracks, drops of sauce etc). I also considered chopping the egg in two to expose the centre of the egg inside. I decided to composite a Heniz logo which (for me anyway) is typically the sauce I would grab when eating a traditional egg, chips and peas meal. However, my mini weekend project was simply a bit of fun with the camera inside of a controlled studio environment.
