Product photography comes in many shapes, sizes, textures, forms, temperatures to name but a few, so the difficulties facing food photographers can be quite a challenge.
Photographing chocolates and their packaging comprises several of those difficulties. Chocolates can be very temperamental dependent upon the temperature at which they are stored. Their surface can have tiny specs of chocolate dust which has to be removed before shooting, or perhaps fingermarks or small areas of roughness which have to be smoothed. Shiny packaging such as tins and reflective surfaces such as silver wrappers and transparent cellophane all make for a challenge to ensure that each element is perfect.....and then there is the design element to add to this too..... then the lighting...... and that is why the serious companies choose professional photographers to ensure their products look the very best for their clients.
A picture is worth a thousand words could never be more true. If it looks like you want to eat it from the photograph then you will almost certainly go out of your way to try and purchase it.
They are the reasons I enjoy food photography so much, especially chocolates (my studio isn't that big either so smaller items in general suit my environment better). That isn't to say that I won't travel and shoot on-site though. Larger products, such as machinery items may often be photographed in situ and this is equally rewarding all be it in a different way.
