Food Photography – Cheese and Onion Pasty

I have an upcoming food shoot and thought I would test drive the lighting in advance.

The shoot will be on location so the lighting had to be simple. The lighting also needed to be suited to a small space. In the end the most successful shots were high key with a slightly higher viewpoint.

I didn’t include a recipe this time as we just quickly put the pasties together. They simply consist of pie dough cut in a circle,¬† filled with shredded cheddar cheese and carmelized onions, sealed¬†then coated with egg wash, then baked. Yummy!
