As a food photographer, I am always on the lookout for new and exciting dishes to capture through my lens. Recently, I had the pleasure of making homemade gluten-free oats choc chip pancakes for a cheat late breakfast. The dish was not only visually appealing but also delicious. The golden brown pancakes with melted chocolate chips on top looked so tempting that I couldn’t resist taking a picture.
One of the things that I love about food photography is that it allows me to be creative. I can play around with different props and backgrounds to create a unique image. For this shot, I used a white backdrop to focus on the food more and added some fresh berries, keeping it as simple as possible. The honey drizzling down the pancakes added an extra layer of texture and colour to the image.
It’s worth noting that this dish is gluten-free, making it an excellent option for those with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. The only naughty part of the meal were the dark chocolate choc chips, which can be substituted with any other healthier topping such as fresh fruits or nuts.
When it comes to food photography, lighting is everything. I made sure that the lighting was perfect for this shot. I used natural light to highlight the texture of the pancakes and to bring out the colours of the dish. I also experimented with different angles to find the perfect shot.
In conclusion, capturing food images is not just a job for me, it’s my passion. It’s about creating an image that tells a story and evokes emotions in the viewer. Whether it’s a simple dish or an elaborate one, every dish has its own story to tell. As a photographer, it’s my job to capture that story and bring it to life through my lens.
