Photographic production for the book “Cocina de Canarias

The photographic production for the book “Cocina de Canarias. La Evolución is a very special job for us that we had been working on a few years ago. It was a great experience for all of us and an honor to be able to collaborate in its development since our work was distinguished by the “Gourmand World Cookbooks Awards” granting us the recognition of “The best regional cuisine publication in Spain.”

The editing and photographic production of the book entitled “Cocina de Canarias. La Evolución ” means for us a before and after in our professional career and an unforgettable experience. This project was born and developed thanks to the collaboration between two prestigious Canarian chefs, Rogelio Quintero and Pedro Rodríguez Dios , and us, Roger Méndez Photography.

Photoshooting

Gastronomic photography is one of our passions, and even more when it comes to Canarian cuisine and elaborated by two prestigious chefs: Rogelio Quintero and Pedro Rodríguez Dios. Through this type of images, the aim is to capture the “flavour”, colour, shape and texture of each culinary creation.

This work is part of our gastronomic photography service.

Photographic technique

In food photographs, the choice of lighting and the composition of the plate play an essential role. The speed of shooting is also important to be able to capture good photographs.

This time the photographic production work was very meticulous, taking care of every detail.

Photograpic Edition 

All the photographic production work for the book “Cocina Canaria. La evolución” was done with Hasselblad medium format cameras and equipment. The photographs were shot and checked during the development of the photosoohting. These types of photographs require careful subsequent editing to get a good final resoult. For this reason, we develop this editing work in a second phase, in our head offices.

We hope you liked the photographs of Canarian gastronomy that we show you in this post. To see other gastronomy photographs in which we have worked, you can follow the link: Gastronomy Photography.
