I set it up that day and waited. They brought him over. I grabbed him and wrestled him onto table. He was slippery but cooperative and we all knew what was to happen next. It didn’t take too long despite the fact that I had to take a few shots….
This is Bronzini, a fish. I shoot Food. I’m also the fish guy
The director of this job couldn’t be on location but we kept communicating by posting images live online as we shot them. With me, besides my assistant, was the designer and owner, watching the monitor as images appeared and after some careful time for initial approvals on backgrounds colors etc, we went on to execute my mission.
It doesn’t get any fresher than this by setting it up on location. Full scale lighting for such small colorful items help make them clean and makes their colors sparkle. Styling them is another challenge and sometimes the simpler something looks the harder it is. Luckily my sous chef experience comes into play as this time we didn’t bring in one of the great food stylists I work with. This job presented its own set of challenges and time constraints but that’s part of the job and why I love it.
