Pattern Food & product Photography in Athens.

This is special technics, its no 3D.
Pattern and texture are an often-overlooked part of the creative food photographer’s.
Just think of the texture of cake or coffee, patterns created by rice, pasta. Or others products like jewellery, souvenirs etc.
I can make REGIMENTAL PATTERN or RANDOM REPETITION.
Patterns and textures are a part of our natural world and of course includes the food. They are almost unavoidable in foodphotography. This will create a very disciplined and almost mathematical effect. Patterns that are made up of lots of quite different objects, yet which take on a kind of uniformity when they are all viewed together.
The relationship of the colours in every element of the photo creates a pattern and relationship between the elements. It brings them together, creating a kind of uniformity between them. Pattern doesn’t always have to mean repetition.
Repetition is a great technique when you have lots of subjects that are similar, like kourabiedes. The more you repeat something in a photo, the more importance it gives to that element.
Harmony can be great not for all shots and may easily slip into monotony, can get boring. I can play with the viewer’s expectations, grabbing their attention by breaking the monotony. This usually works best when the odd-item-out is strategically positioned in the frame using compositional techniques.
Pattern and texture photography can be a great way of adding extra interest and excitement to your foods.
