Treasure Shabu InterContinental Hotel Puxi - 五珍刷品 上海浦西洲际酒店

Two days after we came back from Bangkok, our team had another new project; the new restaurant, Treasure Shabu, about to open on the first floor of InterContinental Puxi Hotel.

 On this occasion we needed to shoot four set meals, and a waitress pouring a bottle of Sake into a cup. At the beginning, the angle for the food shots were going to be at 45 degrees but when we arrived at the hotel, Scott proposed a better idea, to shoot overhead. The client loved his idea, but we found ourselves short on some equipment as a result. As an experienced photographer, Scott came up with a perfect solution improvising with what we had. We quickly built the set, and we used the floor in a private dining room as the background.

 When Scott got the lights right, we needed to focus on the placing of the food and composition. The food that the hotel provided was very fresh and we had to shoot as soon as possible before the vegetables went bad and we were constantly spraying them with water.  When shooting the meat dishes, the ice under the meat melted faster than we would of liked so we tuned up the AC to let the room cool down, so the color of the meat would be ideal.

 The last shot was of a waitress pouring a bottle of Sake into a cup. We wanted the pouring to look natural so we asked her to continuously pour the Sake of course we used water instead of wasting good Sake. We had four full bottles and two to three cups on standby. Once she filled the cup or emptied a bottle, we could replace it straight away. She needed to keep the same pose each time, so basically she could not move at all or the focus would be out. After more then an hour of shooting, we finally got the shot, thanks for her hard work, professionalism and patience. 

当我们从曼谷回来没过两天,我们团队马上又要投入到另外一个摄影项目。上海浦西洲际酒店的一楼新开了一个间小火锅的餐厅-五珍刷品,这次就是我们摄影的项目。

 我们这次是要拍摄4个套餐外加一个服务员倒清酒的照片。原本以为食品会是45度角拍过去,但是Scott突然提议给客户说我们试试俯拍。客户也很喜欢这个点子。但是我们在准备器材的时候,没料到会有这一个变化。还好Scott经验老到,马上帮想到解决的方案,用我们现有的器材,达到他想要的效果。我们就迅速的把器材给架设起来,背景就选用他们餐厅包房的地毯。

 Scott迅速的解决灯光问题之后,我们要考虑的就是摆盘和构图。酒店提供食物都十分的新鲜,所以我们需要加快速度拍摄,不然蔬菜会老掉,不时地还要给蔬菜上面洒水。在肉类部分,因为下面的冰在不断的融化,我们调低了房间的温度,让冰融的慢一点,保持肉鲜美的颜色。

 最后我们是要拍摄一个女服务员在倒清酒的画面。为了追求真实感,我们就要那位女服务员不停的倒。但是当然我们是用清水不是用清酒。我们准备了四瓶酒瓶,两到三个杯子。她只要一倒满或是酒倒没了,我们马上帮他换新的。姿势上面有些要求,所以基本上她是不能动的,不然我们得重新对焦。一个多小时的拍摄下来,最终拍摄到双方都满意的照片,辛苦了这位服务员!
