For my final portfolio in my Directed Studio class at OCAD U, I decided to embark on a new adventure: exploring food photography. I am hoping to make food look as delicious as they taste. This particular series was presented as my final portfolio of my first semester. The first image you see, was shot in Little India in downtown Toronto, where I got to experience the spicy and sweet taste of Puris. The images following were shot at the Chef's House by George Brown College. The students at the restaurant are chefs in training, who produced a wonderful lunch menu for me to photograph. Enjoy!
This past summer I worked for Daniela Ciuffa Photography. I learned the basics of lighting, from shooting in studio to shooting natural light. Moreover, I learned a lot about portrait photography, food photography and wedding photography. After three months of working with the fabulous Daniela, I can officially say that I gained lots of experience in the field of photography and cannot wait to put everything I have learned into my last year of uni. We spent a sunny afternoon shooting delicious homemade food on our patio with food photographer Martin Szabo who is amazing at what he does. My dad made a lot of his favourites (suckling pig belly) and mum her desserts and infamous pizza. The photos speak truly for the food. Everything looked and tasted delicious!
