Food Photography

So its proven again that G is a better photographer. Duh! He is my photography guru, for crying out loud. Two years back if you had asked me for the exif of a photo, I would have said, “What?!”. And when G came into my life, I developed a liking towards photography for he was an excellent amateur photographer. I am glad I developed that interest, because, it is not easy to wait for 30 mins on a hike when he patiently follows an ant or focuses on a fallen leaf. But I learnt a lot on those long waits, patience being one of them :). Here are some of his photos.

Only after starting this food blog did I realize that food photography is way different than others. It is not very easy to capture a pleasing picture of a dish, its texture and colour, lying in a small plate. Not to mention the feat of food styling and plating. G patiently learnt (food photography was new to him too) and taught me few tricks of the trade like macros, perspective of a shot, lighting, etc to make a picture interesting.

Therefore, I am not quite surprised that you liked his choice. I thank each one of you for letting me know your thoughts. But I still like the daytime shot of the Granita :).

Gorgeous photos, Suganya - looks like your husband should be a pro. How nice you can share that interest together :)

Suganya, did not say your picture was not beautiful just that G's was better :) but look forward everyday to see your beautiful photos of food which like you said is a different art. G's pictures are wonderful by the way. Thanks for publishing them.

Revathi said...

Suganya,
This is just toooo much. Today I had the privilege ( really i mean it ) to browse ur blog completely ( almost there!! )

Its just superb and awesome. The picture quality is very good and the recipes are super simple.

Thanks for trying out the drumstick leaves from my blog...

Sharmi said...

those pics are awesome!! lovely photographs. you too take great pics!!

Suganya said...

Thank you for all your compliments. Will pass them on to G :)

Its ok to say G's photos are better than mine, which is the truth. He is into this for 7 years now, while i am less than a year old. And his photographic eye is so unique that there is always a 'wow' factor. He is truly my 'better' half. So, Indosungod, Asha and Sharmi, thx for consoling me :)

The last picture, as Anonymous (why this anonymity?) has rightly pointed out is Antelope Canyon, Arizona. It is the 'Grand Daddy' of all canyons, which was carved out of underwater currents eons ago. That ray of light enters the canyon for a few minutes everyday, during summer. Photographers from around the world assemble there to take that one particular shot, which is very difficult with tourists everywhere.

Really beautiful pics. I like especially the tulip maybe because I love flowers.:)

Suganya said...

Asha, tips on food photography, I can do that. Maybe I will write a post on it. Give me some time though :)

Revathi, It is a privilege for me to have you here. I have always followed your blog and love yr tamilian recipes :) Drumstick stir-fry was a hit in my home. Will make it anyday!

Wow! I am a fan already! Love the shots. You both make a good photography team.

Cynthia said...

Suganya, G should have a photography blog to showcase his work. That would really be great. His pics are magnificent! They are all art. I partularly like the frames you added to them in the post. I would love to have all 4 blown up and put in various parts of my house. Really great work. Please pass on my compliments to G.

Cynthia said...

Of course you know that I think highly of your food photography skills!

Suganya said...

Thanks Cynthia for yr compliments. G already has a photo blog, but not allowing me to blogroll him. He is not happy with his template and still working on it. Will let you all know once its done.

Padma said...

Foodie said...

Hey I have visited your blog couple of times but never commented.
But today you compelled me to comment on those pictures. Wow! amazing.Especially the tulips and the sail boat. "G" make it your profession you will give the other photographers a run for their money.
Suganya, your food photography is also one of a kind.

Lovely photos Suganya.Both of u are very good photographers. no doubt that all ur pictures look so wonderful.

Vidya said...

those pics are awesome

yes, i agree food photography is dicey

some of my shots tend to look like a culture of e-coli or some equally offensive stuff. nothing can kill focus on a really good dish like a really bad picture!
