When you travel, you’ve gotta live it up.
So Max and I booked a room at the Marriott.
And we’re gonna share some tips with you guys on photographing food and drink.
Max, you ready to do some wining and dining?(Academy)
Thought you’d never ask.
我的天 我好饿 等不及要吃了
Oh my gosh. I’m so hungry, so ready to eat.
I’m really hungry too.
How hungry are you?
I’m so hungry I could eat some food.
Taking a photo of your food that actually makes it look delicious
can be a little bit more challenging than you might expect.
And lighting has a lot to do with that.
So try shooting next to a window,
because the light coming in will give your food a lot more natural tones.
哦天 谢谢 这看起来很棒
Oh my gosh. Thank you. This looks so good.
Pretty. Thank you.
– Well I think I might take some photos of this.- Of course.
So… what I’m noticing off the bat is that although this light is really nice,
taking photos of food might be a little bit contrasty.
It’s totally coming from the one side.
Um… a professional photographer in this situation would bring out a reflector,
which would just bounce the light back onto the subject.
Um… if you don’t have a reflector, that’s totally okay. You can just use something that’s white.
So something like a napkin would work.
A little dog.
Or even a sunhat.
-嗨 Katy-嘿 Max
– Hi Katy.- Hey Max.
You care to join me for a beverage?
I would love to join you for a beverage. What do you have there?
– It’s like a pink lemonade.- Huh.
– Um… excuse me?- Yes.
Can I please get an Old Fashioned?
Thank you so much.
Oh they’re fast here.
Well it is at Marriott.
Do you want to take some photos of these drinks?
You have to take a photo of a drink.
When you’re taking photos of your drinks, try out some different perspectives.
Get up close to get that detail.
And then try getting down on the same plane to make it look larger than life.
Can I tell you a little trick that I picked up?
I would love to hear one.
– Okay, so turn the flashlight on on your phone.- Okay.
– And then let’s put my drink over top of that. – On top of the flashlight?
是的 你能拿着酒杯上边吗 好的谢谢
Yes. Could you just hold it on top of it? Yeah, thank you.
Kinda looks like a sunset, huh?
It’s gonna feel like a sunset in your stomach.
Okay, I think I got it.
– Thanks so much. I’ll take that.- Here you are.
Well, thanks for watching.
