Personal projects are so important to the creative process … they are an opportunity to reach and grow, and try out new things, and are a great way to build portfolio. Food photography is one of the most challenging genres to practice; beautiful dishes to photograph can be elusive, and the food preparation can be long and time consuming. So when our friend, Chef Fred Heurtin, threw out an invitation, “Let’s do a joint project, I’ll cook, you photograph”, we jumped … to Atlanta! We had a wonderful time following Fred from market to table and a few stops in between! We can’t wait to show you. For now, here’s a peek at Steve and Fred, each working their own part of the creative process … Fred cooking away in the kitchen, Steve setting up a shot on the dining room table. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun, and we came away with some great portfolio pieces and a few lessons learned … stay tuned, we’ll be sure to give you the dish! (did you catch what I did there?)
