I love the Rising Light series from Profoto. With each student they feature we're introduced to some incredible creativity and a future artist. I especially enjoyed this post loaded with great content thanks to Jens-Linus Lundgren-Widén.
Besides sharing some stunning food photography, there's another reason I wanted to share this post from Profoto's blog archives. So many of you, as established professional photographers, often have to photograph food. Sadly, many of you have had to learn "on the job". Table top work is anything but your core focus, and the quality of the ultimate image is compromised or simply takes you an usual amount of time to capture.
So, a Rising Light profile about the work of a particularly talented Hallmark Institute student, Yael Pachino, seems to be a perfect way to help many of you improve your images. Even better is sharing a stronger thought process the next time you're put in a position of needing to capture stunning images of food.

Rising Light is an article series highlighting promising photography students from all over the world. This month we introduce Yael Pachino, at Hallmark Institute of Photography, Massachusetts, and her mouth-watering photography.
Baltimore native Yael Pachino is big on food. Not eating food per se, though she does admit to it, but photographing food. And she’s good at it. Very good.
Yael is currently a student at the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Turners Falls, Massachusetts. She fell in love with Hallmark after spending a day touring the facilities. In particular she was impressed with the number of portrait and still-life studios the school maintained along with an incredibly well supplied set of cameras, lenses, and lighting that was hers to utilize. Add to that an amazing faculty to get encouraged from while learning how to capture pictures of food that make you want to eat the page.
“Food is a special part of life and I want to see where my love for food takes me.”
For starters she plans on spending time with family in Israel, learning more about middle-eastern foods, and taking mouth-watering pictures of whatever foods come her way.
