Mark Cleghorn continues the food shoot, experimenting with interesting ways to light the dishes.

Using kit like the EL-Skyport Plus, gives you the option to quickly experiment with lighting by changing groups and power from the top of your camera. Mark demonstrates this while waiting for the next dish and comes up with a different way of lighting his food photography. With inspiration from this new way of lighting Mark continues with the shoot. Capturing a variety of images for each dish demonstrating his techniques for lighting with two lights and a selection of homemade reflectors, camera and food positions and use of coloured card to make an image pop. As Mark wraps up the shoot he quickly recaps the session reiterating key points.
