As Summer approches, there is no better way to beat the heat than treating yourself to something cold and sweet.

You eat with your eyes first. Maybe you are hungry or maybe you’re not, but either way often you see something and immediately, consciously or unconsciously, think, “I’ll eat that. So have look of this wonderful mouthwatering dishes that we photographed just for you.

One of the several reasons why Photo Darpan was formed, was due to a lack in creative flair within commercial photography. After working within venues, restaurants and food outlets for many years this naturally developed into capturing food & beverages and also undertaking menu photography projects.

The ideas, the photos, the story and the memories. All are connected to how creativity is created. Have you ever wanted your photos to float?

It seems like magic due to the level of creativity. Its time to recreate, redefine photography with this technique.

Levitation images are magical! They draw the viewer in and make them think about what’s not quite right. However, levitation photography is not easy. We need to consider minute details. A single shot can take minimum of 4 hrs for execution. I think most people would be surprised to know that in its most basic form, we need to consider following things

  • Conceptualization and planning: This phase we discuss concept. We need to imaging end-result and impact it is going to create.
  • Execution: Here we need to create the scene. Photographers need to be pro-active and need to consider options during live sessions. This is where experience counts the most.
  • Post Processing: Shortlisting the shot and editing an image to perfection. This is a lengthy task and requires review and approval from the customer.

Recently, I decided I needed to get my creative juices flowing again and get out of my comfort zone. Levitation photography caught my eye.

Professional food photography is an important aspect of any restaurant or food outlet project as it helps generate fresh visual content for web or print use. Larger businesses may need professional imagery for a menus or internal training use, smaller companies may benefit from photos of new food items for their social media channels. The advantages of using a creative photographer for projects involving a great venue, stunning products or unique take on an idea are obvious.
