Quick and Easy Photography Lighting Setup for Professional Results
There I was, right in the heart of Eureka Springs, Arkansas, at the charming Local Flavor restaurant, ready to put Halumin to the test. This revolutionary lighting modifier was about to demonstrate its potential in restaurant food photography, and I was excited to see the results.
As I entered the cozy establishment, owners Britt and Connie greeted me warmly, eager to showcase their culinary masterpieces. Little did they know that their dishes were about to become the stars of an effortless and efficient photoshoot, thanks to Halumin.
Setting up Halumin took mere minutes, and soon enough, the stage was set for capturing three mouthwatering dishes: a delicate crème brûlée, a juicy fillet with gorgonzola cheese mashed potatoes and spinach, and a delectable fillet of walleye accompanied by rice and asparagus.
Perfect Plates of Food Photography
The first dish to be immortalized was the crème brûlée. With Halumin’s intuitive lighting control, I quickly snapped photos that showcased the dessert’s rich, creamy texture and the crackly caramelized sugar topping.
Next up was the fillet with gorgonzola cheese mashed potatoes and spinach. The lighting provided by Halumin made the dish look absolutely scrumptious, highlighting the tender meat and the creamy, flavorful potatoes.
The third dish, the fillet of walleye with rice and asparagus, was no exception. With Halumin’s help, I captured the dish’s savory allure, making it look as if it had just been plated by a professional food stylist.
Spontaneous Creativity and Versatility
As we wrapped up photographing the main dishes, Britt suggested capturing an image of him holding a glass of wine in front of a blooming dogwood tree. Seizing the opportunity to showcase Halumin’s versatility, I agreed, and we set off to create the perfect shot.
Using Halumin handheld, we positioned Britt with the glass of wine in the center of the staging area, effortlessly capturing the exquisite scene. The soft, even light provided by Halumin created a warm and inviting atmosphere in the image, highlighting the delicate petals of the dogwood tree and the enticing allure of the wine.
Halumin for Every Photographer
At the end of our photoshoot, Connie, inspired by the results, decided to use Halumin with her phone to capture some quick wine images. This impromptu session further demonstrated Halumin’s accessibility and usefulness for photographers of all skill levels, from professionals to amateurs.
