[Thoughts on the Table – 33] A food photography primer with Raffaella De Amicis

raffaella de amicis

In this episode of Thoughts on the Table, I have the pleasure to host an extensive chat with professional photographer Raffaella De Amicis. Raffaella touches on photography fundamentals (aperture, shutter speed, and ISO), and presents a primer on food photography. Don’t miss Raffaella’s tips on lighting (such as diffusion and color temperature), composition (including Leading Lines and the Rule of Thirds), food styling and the use of props. In the second part of the episode, Raffaella talks about her Italian roots in Apulia and shares her insightful take on culinary authenticity.

You can follow Raffaella on flickr and on Twitter @RaffaLuce.

Note: the episode is packed with information and has a running time of 38 minutes – exactly like my daily commute! I hope it’ll ease your commute too 🙂
