How To – Pina Colada Food Photography

I have been playing alot with “styling” photos and food. Food photography is so intriguing to me, and lighting is always a battle. I wanted to create a “mood” so, I only lit the scene from right. I bought a Lowel Ego light a few months back, and the lighting has made a huge difference in my photos.

I painted the wood planks myself, to create an interesting back drop. I painted them a few coats of blue-grey, and then went over them with a dry brush with some white paint on it ever so lightly, just to create the contrast in the grain. I love it so much, I’m going to do this in several colors and post a how-to.

Yellow and grey is one of my favorite color combos. I purchased the twine and straws from one of my favorite shops on etsy: In the Clear. The mason jar I had on hand and decided it would be “cooler” than a traditional cup. So, what do you think?

    I always love your pictures. It’s amazing that you painted wood just to get the colors right. What light source do you use?
