We had an interesting opportunity to photograph the new breakfast menu of the Snack Bar at the Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort and Spa. Their new offerings were so tasty and delicious. I know because Mel and I got to eat the food after. ; ) I should offer to do lunch and dinner for free!
The lighting definitely presented some new and crazy challenges! One of these challenges were trying to expose both the scene in the back as well as the food equally with the blaring sun shining in your lens! We had just recently purchased new video lights for these types of situations. It creates a nice and natural feel compared to the harsh lights of flashes to try and equalize the lights and shadows. Of course you can also use a diffuser on a flash but that is a whole different topic.
One of our favorites was the wrap. It was stuffed full of eggs, vegetables and meat, specifically my favorite, bacon! It was big enough to share, or if you’re hungry you can eat it by yourself. Coupled with their fresh squeezed juices it was one amazing breakfast.
We got a couple of gigs lined up in the next couple of weeks so Mel or I will update y’all as soon as we can! As always follow us on Facebook
