DRINK AND FOOD CHRISTMAS PHOTOGRAPHY

There were four pubs on the list to cover for the Christmas stock images,these were in Ashford and Faversham, all had parties going on and were set in idyllic country and town settings. The pubs were all busy and allowed for a varied section of photos that can be used across web and social media.

I knew that the venues were going to be busy so kept kit to a minimum, the 24-70mm lens fitted the bill perfectly, a good focal range and also good for close up work. I also covered some in situ product photographs of the Shepherd Neame Christmas Ale, the warm glowing fire in the Sun Inn, Faversham provided the perfect backdrop. I under exposed by 1 stop to keep the detail in the flames and used just natural window light to give detail to the label, an aperture of F4 provided a crisp shot of the product with the fire just blurred out in the background.
