While there probably isn't anything Todd White can't photograph, his passion for imaging is definitely in still photography and video on the commercial/fashion side. We catch up to each other on Facebook a lot, and when he shared a few of his short commercial videos, I wanted to share at least one of them here.
Food photography (and video) is a challenge for so many photographers. Over the years in workshops, I've had artists continually tell me they don't photograph food, yet as wedding photographers especially, the challenge comes up at almost every event.
Pay attention to the way Todd put together the short video below. No lyrics, just great images, music and all in thirty-five seconds. As I've often suggested - how would you tell a unique aspect of your story in under a minute?
And the video is so well done, and the Cheesy Bread looked so good, I called 600 Degrees on a long-shot to see if they ship or might be found in the frozen foods aisle! *sigh* - they don't...yet.
Todd's a LUMIX Ambassador, and thanks to social media, our friendship has grown. I'm looking forward to the day when we can actually meet face to face. Check out Todd's website, along with the LUMIX Ambassador team. This group is one of the most diverse and creative teams in photo, and all the ambassadors should be on your radar. Check out the LUMIX Photographers Facebook page too - there are always great conversations and images being shared.
Todd's shooting with the full-frame LUMIX S1R and the LUMIS S Pro 24-70mm F2.8 lens. Click on either thumbnail below for more information about both of these outstanding products.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
