Table Talk w/ NYT Food Photographer Andrew Scrivani

The Chowhound Team | Dec 9, 201901:49 PM    

If you read the New York Times Cooking section, you’re probably aware of the incredible photographs that accompany their many recipes, and there's one guy you can thank for many of those dazzling shots of holiday roasts, dreamy desserts, and perfect bowls of pasta.

Andrew Scrivani has been photographing food for the Times since 2002 when editor Sam Sifton gave the young creative his first assignment—shooting an ice cream parlor in his Staten Island (where he's from). 17 years and countless mouth-watering photos later, Scrivani joins Chowhound for this next edition of Table Talk, answering all your burning food photography-related questions.

In his newly released instructional book, "That Photo Makes Me Hungry: Photographing Food for Fun & Profit," Scrivani outlines the basics of everything from lighting and aperture to food styling, and camera setting with tons of helpful tips.

Wondering which camera lens to buy, or which software is best for editing food shots? For the next two weeks, Scrivani will be answering your questions; just drop them into the comments below from now until Monday, December 23, and snag his new book now available at major booksellers & retailers.
