Join Bill Robbins for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a studio kit, part of Learning Food and Drink Photography.
An important tool to the food photographer is our studio kit.…Here are some of the essentials for the food photographer not to be without in…the studio or on location.…So first up is our tweezers.…So the tweezers give us the ability on set to move things without leaving…fingerprints, so this would definitely be an essential item.…Next, we have the tapes.…Firs,t we have the photographer's best friend, the gaffer's tape. Then we go to…the masking tape, double stick tape, and the granddaddy of them all, the toupee tape.…
The toupee tape has the ability to almost hold anything because of the strength…in its stickiness on both sides.…It's also the thinnest tape that we can find.…In the back, we have our gloves. When we're using hot lights,…we want to make sure that we have those in our toolkit.…Next, we're going to go to the baby medicine syringes.…These will allow you to put fluids in and out of glasses without leaving drips…going down the side of the glasses.…
Up next, we have the eyedropper.…The eyedropper we can use to place bubbles, say like in coffee, in a very specific spot.…
