More Food Photography: Macaroons

After successfully carrying out my first food shoot 3 weeks ago for a project on advertising, I chose to continue working in this area. This time I was photographing Macaroons from different viewpoints. Below is a gallery of some of the finished images in this collection.

I wanted the food to be well lit, so this meant using spot lights, lamps and diffusers, but I also wanted the black background to stay black. So all of the lights were carefully angled for each shot, so the light only went on the food, and not on the background. 

To make the macaroons stand up in the correct position, I placed staples under each item, this gave a flat base for the macaroons to lean on.
