Le Papillon – Spring 2014 Menu Additions (Food Photography) @ San Jose, California

I’ve been shooting at Le Papillon restaurant in San Jose for, gosh, many years. And while my skills have definitely improved in that time period, their food started out awesome (and continues to be so). Scott Cooper is such a creative chef, I love seeing what he comes up with. When we’re collaborating, it’s definitely a dual-effort, and we build on what we’ve learned from previous shoots. Per my suggestion, Scott purchased some black laminate plastic as well as some slate rock sheets to use for some of the shots. Today’s shoot was an interesting (and challenging!) combination of high-key bright-white compositions and very dark, luminescent ones. If you’re a food or product photographer, I think you can appreciate the challenges of switching back and forth between these two styles throughout a shoot. Here’s my favorites, feel free to comment below:
