How To Create an Awesome Burger Photograph.

First of all you need an awesome burger so I will be using the Sally’s Bar Half Pound Gormet Burger, complete with a bucket of chips, coleslaw, onion relish and salsa dip.

This is the same set-up but this time photographing a Baileys CheeseCake dessert

I started by stacking one table on top of another to raise the plate to reach the Sally’s Sign in the background (Created by me and a friend named Dave) I then clamped my desk lamp to the table with a 140 watt light bulb in it and shined it on the burger without lighting the back wall too much as the background already has LED lighting.

I used my Canon 600d with 50mm 1.8 lens for the shot and only used some minor tweaking in Light room to adjust the colours a little and also raised the exposure on the chips as they were a little dark. I do plan to acquire more lighting but you just gotta work with what you’ve got. I do plan to purchase or make a couple of soft-boxes in the future to create even better images but even with just one light and a little ambient light from the room I feel rather proud of what i have achieved here.

I also used my home-made camera board with castor wheels to create some smooth video dolly-shots as I plan to also make some nice advertisement videos later on in the year when I have more free time which I’m very excited about and can’t wait to share here on my blog.
