Photo: Andrew Grinton & Stacey Brandford’s Photos are a Feast for the Eyes

Get inspired for Thanksgiving with these gorgeous shots and see below for a special Holiday book sale!

Great food photography is more than just capturing the finished product of a unique recipe. It requires that the food be carefully placed, well lit and appetizing. Like our two features today, many shots are taken from an “above the table” perspective, which allows for the placement of other essential items on the table such as silverware, herbs or flowers. Together, the elements compose a mood for the food to rest in, like a rustic farmhouse vibe or a modern all-white plate to showcase gastronomy’s finest.
Canadian Photographer Andrew Grinton and his Food Stylist Noah Witenoff created Soup Story” (ABOVE) which is meant to “highlight the change of seasons from summer to fall with a series of colourful soups paired with seafood.” Each bowl is bright and enticing, and showcases its crustaceous main ingredient. The charcoal colored background lays the foundation for pops of color and small details like strewn sea salt.

Next, we’re serving up a Silver-winning piece called Gather Round (ABOVE) by Stacey Brandford. She also hails from Canada and has captured the true sense of togetherness that can only happen at the dinner table. Created with Set and Prop Designer Stacey Smithers and Food Stylist Kristen Eppich, the viewer can fully immerse their senses in the almost-moving image. Another rustic table-scape complements the hearty dishes as emotion-filled hands take another serving.
We wish all who celebrate a Happy Thanksgiving and hope that the day of gratitude and reflection extends the whole year round.
