i am not sure how a group can shoot together, esp if end of the day you are going to use the photo in your menu. You will ended up having different WB, lighting, angle and perspective when you have mixture of cameras and lenses. It will definitely looks funny if there is such inconsistency in your food menu.Originally Posted by mintae
May be instead of asking for CD from the photographer at the end of the day, you can offer the food JUST for everyone to practise or experiment different styles, so that everyone can learn together. For your menu, i will suggest you to leave it to the professional to do it, may be along the way you can learn a few pointers too. In the end, whether your food can sell or not will depends on the first impression - ie. the photo, so dont be stingy with this.
