I don’t believe in random creative freedom. You’re at your most creative when you have flexibility within a clear conceptual boundaries. I find that when doing food photography as well as videography. I find it fascinating how Stillmotion create great stories with the 5-keyword rules.
So I give myself five keywords that describe what I want to achieve with the photos:
– Morning Mood
I stick with them. The great thing is even within the five keywords there are plenty ideas to play with. With the help of Elvina, a friend of mine who used to be Femina’s writer / stylist off I go and execute the food photo session. She brought a few healthy bars from Healthy Monsters that her sisters made. It tasted pretty good although more on the sweet end of the curve.
You’re at your most creative when you have flexibility within a clear conceptual boundaries.
Long story short, here are some of the food photo that we shot. I’m behind the camera and El doing the styling. Let me know if these images are a good representation of the five keywords above. We actually took more but they are with another keywords. Stay tune, I might publish them soon. 😉
In the mean time. Enjoy =)
