涨知识 作者:Dan Sandoval 日期:2016-12-23

 

 

We often see food photos and think “that looks sooo good” only to trytaking photos of our own food and resulting with “it tasted much better than it looks”.
我们经常看到一些食物的照片,觉得“那看起来太好吃了”,而当我们自己拍照片的时候,结果可能却是“吃起来比照片上看起来要好得多”。

There is no doubt that for many of us self-titled “foodies”, we wish wecould take photos that look as good as our meals tasted, so with that in mind,today’s tips will focus on getting our food photos “Mmm Mmm…better”.
毫无疑问,很多自称“吃货”的我们,都希望拍出的照片能像食物的味道一样好。记住了,今天谈论的技巧就是要让我们拍出的食物照片“嗯……味道好极了”

TIP 1: Get Down   技巧一:放低

 

Getting lower is the first thing that I would say to anyone trying to takea better food photo. Why? Well, it’s easy. By getting lower, add more texture to your photo as light comes across the food. Ideally, you are sitting at adecently lit place (window light can be great for food photography) and bygetting low you add that much needed texture that makes the food not look flat,slimy and boring. Additionally, you get the added benefit of less table moreenvironment in your shot making it feel more welcoming in general.
要想拍摄好的食物照片,我要告诉所有人的第一件事就是放低角度。为什么呢?嗯,很容易理解。把角度放低,光线穿过食物的时候就可以更充分地展现食物的质地。理想的情况是,你坐在一个光线充足的地方(从窗户透进来的光可以是食物摄影的良好光源),放低拍摄角度,就能给食物增加很多所需的质感,让食物看起来不那么平塌和无聊。另外,这样做还给你的照片增加了一个好处,那就是画面中出现的桌面较少,而周围的环境较多,这让照片显得更亲切。

TIP 2: Get High   技巧二:举高


If getting low doesn’t do it for you, and you want to focus on the presentation, getting high is what you want. Standing on a chair looking straight down and getting high above the food shifts the focus off just thefood to the presentation of the food and the table around it. Make sure you have a clean table and uncrumpled napkins for this. FYI: Getting high above your food without a wide angle lens may be hard to do, and standing on your chair is generally frowned upon in establishments that require you to wear shirts.
如果低角度不适合你的拍摄,你想聚焦在食物摆盘上,那么就应该抬高角度拍摄。站在椅子上,镜头垂直向下,在食物的上方拍摄,就能将焦点从食物本身转移到摆盘和桌面。要确保桌面干净,餐巾纸没有褶皱。供参考:如果没有广角镜头,那么抬高角度拍摄可能会比较难;在高档餐厅吃饭的时候站在椅子上拍摄可能也不太合适。

TIP 3: Get in   技巧三:拉近


You got down, you got high, and yet something seems to be missing? It’stime to get in. Pick a part of the food and focus on it. Generally, a shallow depth of field is what you want with food, but when you get close, you have to make sure your DoF is enough to encompass, or at least hint at all the important elements of that dish. Getting a beautiful photo of the cherry on the sundae is great, but not so much if you can’t tell there is a sundae in the photo at all.
放低拍、举高拍,可好像还是缺少点什么?该拉近了。可以选取一部分食物,聚焦在它们上面。通常情况下,浅景深是拍摄食物时所需的,但当你拉近拍摄的时候,要确保景深可以足够地表现画面,至少要包含食物的重要部分。比如,拍摄圣代冰淇淋上的樱桃会是张不错的照片,但如果不把冰淇淋拍到画面里,那就不是张好照片了。

话外篇:说到美食,朋友们开始分享他们和Dan的美食轶事

 

“Dan,美国胖小伙,读完摄影硕士,来到中国就没有回去了。他喜欢中国,喜欢冬日的九寨沟,就定居在成都,我们在北京认识,而后我去了成都,他请我去他家喝各种威士忌,看他的摄影作品,聊他的旅行见闻,还自弹自唱。后来去了酒吧才知道,酒吧的说唱其实是没有歌词的,都是即兴发挥。成都是个好地方,难怪有那么多人喜欢。如果你爱好摄影,好喝几口重口味的洋酒,就去找Dan吧。”

“Dan对吃,我相信是很有见解的。刚认识他时,他带我去红瓦寺的胡同里吃路边烧烤,操着小学水平的普通话跟烧烤小哥谈笑风生,小哥还散烟给他……我在一边震惊之时他已经熟练地点好了餐,嘱咐着烤脑花儿多放辣……”
