There was a time when I was talking to a restaurant owner and he mentioned that the previous photographer for their menu was a wedding photographer. I believe everyone with the fundamentals of photography can approach any subject and take a proper picture. However, despite of a few similarities, I have to say still life photography is a lot different compared to wedding, portrait, or anything with living object.
If you’re used to having models to pose for you, in still life photography, your food won’t do anything for you. In fact, you’re their slave. You have to find their best angle yourself.
If you’re used to working with a couple in love who would do anything for a nice pic, in still life photography you’ll have chefs that have to cook for the walk-in customers and for you.
If you have a make up artist then in still life photography, especially food, you have food stylist to make the food look beautiful as they used to be.
If you capture moment as it reveals in a wedding, in still life photography you create your own moment in your head and then translate it into the food in front of you.
I can’t say which is better. But I do know each one is different. I’m saying this from the point of view of someone who has exercised being a wedding photographer. After a few gigs I know it’s not my cup of tea. Still life photography on the other hand is my calling. Especially food & travel.
Now you probably be asking, why putting so much writing for a simple post to show our recent works? I guess my point is, beyond photography skills and knowing the fundamentals, it takes someone with passion in the subject that they are taking to be able to create masterpieces. Not just another photo.
The same thing for other photography, the same thing for food. With 5 years under our belt and endless passion on food, these are the result we are happy to show, in collaboration with one of the biggest brand in Indonesia: Sariwangi. Hope you enjoy.
