Restaurant Images: Federico's (Phoenix Food Photographer)
One thing about my hometown is that we know Mexican Food. Federico's is a fast food Mexican restaurant and they brought me in for some beauty shots of their popular menu items. Their in-house team did the food prep and styling while I did minor propping all the shooting.
Given some limitations of the location, we shot outdoors with only natural light. Fortunately, the cloud-cover was kind to us that day and we were speedy about completing everything on their shot list.
There are always unknowns when shooting somewhere new. That's why, when there's time and budget available, I like to do a pre-shoot walk through. But, sometimes ya just have to do like Tim Gunn says and, "make it work!"
