A la Carta Food Workflow

Have you ever experienced the feeling of seeing photographs of dishes and drinks and wanted to be part of the scene? No doubt a good food photograph can arouse the appetite of the most demanding viewer, but to achieve such an outcome, it is necessary to take into account many aspects.

In principle, lighting, as the basis for any photographic work. Food Photography is a particular case of Still Life Photography, so the studio atmosphere is going to be present in 95% of the situations that we find (except for some snapshot of an open air moment), but those are rare scenarios since even in those situations we tend to use studio conditions). By this we don’t mean that lighting should be artificial; in fact, natural lighting can set the difference between an amateur and a professional job, by the touch of realism that will show.

Following this process of preparation prior to the photo, the presentation of the dish or drink is essential – nobody would like to eat a dish that is seen streaking, with poor presentation or neglected. The same statement can be applied to a photograph: imagine that, by taking a photograph, we are trying to promote a business such as a restaurant or a coffee shop – the best letter of introduction that can be offered by our business is to have photographs taken by a professional, showing the our repertoire of products offered to our customers. Dishes and drinks with a suitable appearance will achieve 50% of our task; therefore. It is essential to pay attention to the composition of the picture, the colors and shapes, to sell the product in the best possible way.

And passing through the obvious steps of setting up our camera and gathering inspiration, we could say the work is complete… but the reality is that, in order to obtain a quality food photograph  it requires work characterized to be hard and fast – foods should be captured as soon as they are prepared, taking advantage of the steam, which gives us that feeling of ‘just-cooked’, but it is also a reality that many foods decompose rapidly or are prone to melt (mainly those as ice creams, fine pastries, or excessively decorated preparations), by which slowing down too much for camera settings can be counterproductive.

Here comes the dilemma: the photographic quality. We can have photographs with problems of exposure, white balance, pale tints, etc. Wondering,  is there an efficient solution to such problems Fortunately for you, it’s a big YES: digital post-production software such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom can completely transform those photographs in mere seconds, if you possess the proper set of tools.

At Sleeklens we strive to provide quality tools to our users, so we are proud to introduce a new and efficient solution for Food Photography: “A la Carta Workflow”! This pack of 82 Presets and 21 Brushes contains the tools required for a perfect end result in the process of editing food photography. Enjoy incredible tones that will make you feel like part of the scene (caution: we are not responsible if you are using a 3D monitor :-))

Enhance details and correct exposure, while you give an incredible touch of “home made” to all your dishes’s photos – and best of all is that you don’t need advanced knowledge of Adobe Lightroom, in order to enjoy the benefits of post photographic production. Intuitively, these products will adapt to your editing style, while keeping a non-destructive interface.

Now there are no more excuses to not enjoy quality photographic work: give your products the finish they deserve with this toolkit for Adobe Lightroom – a lifelong companion for the dedicated photographer.

Images used to showcase this workflow belong to Clare Barboza –  We would like to invite you to check out her profile and see more of her amazing work!

Presets are easy to install and to use. I maybe prefer the portraits collection presets, but food photography is not my speciality on the other hand. It still allows to easily make a picture look better than the original one, without spending hours editing it.

Verified buyer

I love presets, I have quite a collection now and really enjoy flicking through them on lightroom to see what fits a particular shot. Its great the way these workflows are stackable to give you the result what you want. I use presets usually to give me a base and then change it as I feel to suit a shot. yes you can make your own presets but i find easier to purchase them. The collection from sleeklens are really good, varied and a real time saver, I will buy more as i need them.

Verified buyer

Verified buyer

These presets have enabled my photos to have a more professional look, and I am now able to use them for all of my advertising and social media pages.

Ich bearbeite meine Fotos jetzt schon seit einem Jahr mit den Sleeklense Lightroom Presets und bin immer noch begeistert. Es macht Spaß die verschiedenen Voreinstellungen aus zu probieren , die aus einem "normalen" Foto, oft einen echten Hingucker machen. Die verschiedenen Sammlungen sind so aufgeteilt, daß man sich schnell zurechtfindet. Meine "Lieblings Presets" markiere ich , indem ich über "Umbenennen" ein Emoticon Zeichen dahinter setze. Ich kann die Presets uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
