Male: So, just as I thought, this neighborhood is a food mecca. There's so many great places to eat, so many great photo ops around food. I was at the Molinari Deli. You saw me there shooting this great Italian deli making fantastic sandwiches. you saw me at the, the Italian French bakery in the back. Photographing them making bread. How cool is that? And then you saw me here in (INAUDIBLE) I just got behind the counter, starting photographing him making the cappuccinos.
So you really, you saw that for me, shooting food is not just about shooting the food itself. I also shot in places like Mama's. Really wonderful breakfast place. Probably one of the most famous breakfast places in San Francisco, if not the whole country. I shot the waitress. I shot this great crab benedict. It was just to die for. I shot at Marios. You know, the wonderful little Italian corner store where you can get sandwiches. More like a cafe. So what I want you to take home from this is that when you're shooting the food in a particular place, it's not just about the food itself.
Yeah, get some good shots of the food, get some closeups, get some nice lighting on the food, that's fine. But there's much more to it than just the food. There's the people who served you the food. Is really who made the food, the ambiance around the food. If you can get behind the scene, and get them making the food like we did, get some shots of them making the food you know this is going to really, really round out your portfolio and its going to set you apart from other photographers. Its going to make you much more complete.
And much better photographer. So, that's something to keep in mind when you're shooting food.
