Earlier last month I was in london, Shooting some amazing food at the Avalon Pub in Clapham.
Its a wonderfull pub with a brand new beer garden, build by the Beer Garden Co in dorset. It is a great place to go to eat and have a drink. We set up a shoot on the long feasting table in the garden, with the view to shooting their new party/alfresco menu. With lots of smaller dishes and some colourful cocktails to shoot, I chose to stay away from some of the traditional aspects of food photography and shoot in a candid feel. This in my mind would add to the alfresco feel of the shoot.
The feature piece of the shoot was their new 1 meter pizzas! yes 1 meter, They look very impressive and taste excellent too. Boards handmade by another Dorset company.
All of these were shot with natural light, it was a over cast day anyway, but a large sail above the scene provided some lovely soft diffused light.
Take a look these images, and why not go along and taste some for your selves See here http://www.theavalonlondon.com
