Photography for Social Media

If you are using Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, or any other social sites to promote your restaurant, especially if you want to promote 'daily specials', you probably need a dedicated place in house to do you shots with adequate lighting. The last thing you want is an off-color, under-lite plate of food which does nothing to entice one to stopping by.

A simple cutting board and black backdrop add drama if set up with proper lighting.

If you were to create a dedicated area of your kitchen, office, or somewhere that can be preset with good lighting and offer a variety of backdrops, you could plate the food, and shoot within a few minutes. The key is to have a light-box or tabletop light set up to accomplish the task, without having to assemble or move anything.

I can help create a small work area for this to happen.
