I'm not a pro photographer, just an enthusiastic amateur
A restaurant local to me keeps putting up pics on their website and Twitter/Facebook feeds of their dishes and premises. While they do indeed have great food and location they insist on taking these pictures with an iphone or similar.
I'm considering contacting them and asking if they'd be interested in me taking some nice pics in a controlled setting for their use. I wouldn't charge them as I think it would be good practice for me and plus I'm not even sure I'd want to be a pro photographer. But hey i might get a free meal or two out of it
My question is; a lot of food shoots are done using continuous lighting and several tutorials seem to favour this method of lighting.
Are there any particular things to watch out for if I were to use strobes instead? What are the drawbacks or is it just personal preference?
