'Dining detail' - conference photography

February 09, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Some of the international conference work we do can involve 'dine around' evenings, where the event management team (in this case the fabulous www.insynq.co.uk) arrange for their client an evening of gastro delights at hand-picked off-site restaurant(s).  On such evenings the client photography requirement will, primarily, be to capture delegates enjoying the evening, but also have a record of the venue(s) and any product associated with the sponsorship of the evening.  These shots are always a challenge because we have about four and a half minutes (OK it can seem like it but may be slightly longer, although not by much) to capture the venue before it is inundated with, in this case, over 280 delegates.

The 'sponsorship' products are shot on a similar timescale because, as they are usually drinks, we have to grab a bottle/can of each to shoot for an appealing image before it gets whisked away to be served.  These images were taken just after the delegates were seated and we could use a table in the now empty courtyard (also pictured) of Bovino to set a couple of flash units up to light the product as quickly and effectively as possible.   We love a challenge!

When possible we also take images of the food, again, normally as it is being served - these are normally 'grab shots' dodging the super-efficient waiting staff and so not your traditional 'foodie' shoot
