Poached Eggs Food Photography
A simple poached egg on toast brought to life with some light from a studio strobe. The light was diffused through a large double sheet of tracing paper on a frame. Some reflectors and mirrors were used on the opposite side to fill in the shadows and highlight the toast and eggs. One light is usually best for food photography, combined with various modifiers and bounce. The quality of the food is vital, and the eggs are very fresh, actually laid the morning of the shoot. The shots were done for an editorial client in Cardiff.
