This month I got called back to shoot the new spring menu for Ballarat classic, Craig’s Royal Hotel .
The weather is warming up and although I shot at the same time of day as I did with the previous shoot, the light was completely different (cheers, daylight savings).
The restaurant is built like a conservatory with a glass ceiling and the light was perfect for a hard shadow lover like me.
The food was beautiful, as usual and a pleasure to shoot. I even managed to get a few sneaky splash shots in there.
The playfulness of hard light, really makes the restaurant seem more approachable than it’s reputation gives it credit for – something the client want so avoid is a high brow visual representation of the experience.
The addition of shadows and floral elements, add a real spring freshness and dynamism to the restaurant photography.
What do you think of this style?
