These are some photos from an Udo's Oil shoot that I worked on as mentioned in a previous post.
As you can see, the photo's were taken from over head which really shows off the food. However, when shooting food in this way you really have no where to hide so it's important to pay extra attention to the placement of each piece of food, the shapes created and the props that you use. What looks great side on may not translate as beautifully from above and vice versa.
Shooting everything in a collection in this way might be a bit of a headache to look at, so these shots were mixed with others shot in a more normal way.
Anyhow, pretty pretty..
