As a food photographer, it's my job to engender some emotion from the viewer. Generally it's yearning to eat the food on offer, or aesthetic appreciation, a desire to step into the scene; but when you bring a human element to the frame, that's when a photo can really resonate. Can't you just feel the anticipation here, the mindfulness as this dessert is contemplated - that moment before the spoon is dipped in?
Notice the bokeh effect here; softening of the backgound figure whilst keeping the foreground (those Bonne Maman desserts) sharp. This requires a shallow depth of field, so that only a narrow part of the image is in sharp focus. It's a great technique that can create a really beautiful photo.
I'd love to use my skills to tell your story. Find me through my contact page.
