Food photography, simple clean images .......few props and a bit of kit

I love creating images and having simple clean photos with few props are often the best: A glass, an edible flower, some gin - that is it.......and a few light reflectors, blacked out shades, strips, cameras, tripods and lights. Shot on location at a recent edible flower cocktail shoot in the South West. Photography Guy Harrop
