This is a photo of Australian celebrity chef Emmanuel Mollois whipping up some pâte à choux for profiteroles & eclairs during a French pastry Masterclass in Perth.
It was shot with a DSLR at f/5.6 & 1/15 shutter to emphasise the vigorous whipping motion. Given the really slow shutter speed, had to focus on being as stable as possible while holding my breath on an exhale. Also shot multiple frames in continuous mode to improve odds of a sharp enough shot, to account for not just my moment but the chef's as well, as well as have options to pick the most interesting blurred hand image.
I've included it here as I've not really seen any non-still-life-style food photography here. As with the following article on Your Kitchen Camera (http://bit.ly/1mKWMP4
), I'm very much of the idea that food photography is more than just still life of food. Check out any professional or food blogger worth their salt that covers restaurants & food events and I'd be very surprised if all they shot were only plates of food.
So, the discussion part - is this:
a) what you would consider to be food photography?
b) something that would be considered acceptable to post in this community?
c) something you'd like to see more of (not just from me)?
