I love this project, and always glad to do it. However it doesn’t mean that i never get enough challenge, brainstorming and ‘crisis-management’ during documenting my food in different situations.. HAH-AH, i definitely face enough problems to solve during my “food-photoraphful” everydays.
Here are the TOP 7 most often challenges i face:
1.) Providing White Background
..In any circumstances. Sometimes i find myself lack of white colored surface that i can use as proper background for the transparent glasses, containers, plates of my meals or beverages.
If there is no way to use white background, the final food photo is visually inappropriate and will take a lot of extra time and effort to make it visually acceptable in Adobe Photoshop then.
Here are some examples:
2.) Low Battery or no phone/camera around
3.) Unlucky lighting conditions
4.) No more snacking from the snack bag
I need to pour a bigger amount of snack, nut, candy, sunflower seed, whatever i want to eat. Technically i havn’t eat any food from it’s container in the last 10 years without taking a photo of them on a white background surface first ;).
5.) No drinking from bottle / can / container unless i drink all or mark the amount.
Otherwise i must mark the exact amount i will drink, so later i can visually highlight it properly. Cheating with this is not my business… 😉
6.) failure of camera / phone (Ultra rare)
7.) Inconvenient situations (not so many)
