I consider myself an ok food photographer, one whose photos get better with every shot, but one who still has much to learn. Looks like I shouldn't just be taking tips from other food photographers, but from fashion photographers as well! Yesterday FabSugar introduced me to my new favorite fashion photographer, Miles Aldridge, who took these lush, delicious snapshots for a recent edition of the New York Times Magazine. Colorful, vibrant, and lux, I love how the photos feature luscious foods juxtaposed by the bored, trancelike model. It's almost as if he wanted the food to stand out more than the clothing, and it's interesting how he combines two normally distinct and separate subjects - food and fashion - to create art.
Clearly a foodie, Aldridge is spot on with the food trends in his images - many of which we have discussed here on YumSugar - ice cream sandwiches, non-plastic bags, sodas for adults, etc. I think one of these images would look amazing in a sleek kitchen and I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for his pics in upcoming issues of Vogue.
What do you guys think? Do these pictures highlight the food or the fashion or both?
