Recently Richmond Tourism hosted an international job posting competition that was very unusual indeed. Contestants from around the world applied in a battle for popularity and charm, for being the most creative and innovative foodies around. The job position is for their 365 Days of Dining project, in Richmond BC, where the successful applicant will be paid to explore 365 different restaurants in Richmond.
Well, of the 1500+ applicants Tourism Richmond had, Romina Moradi, of Small Girl, Big Plate fame, was selected as one of the Top 12 Finalists. Needless to say, she’s beside herself with excitement, and pressure to get as many likes as she possibly can on the Facebook page, so please, head here [ top 12 finalists ] and vote for Small Girl, Big Plate before you continue reading this post!
For this shoot, we started outdoors to catch the remaining un-rainy time of the day, and then moved indoors to get a few kitchen shots.
The outdoor shots, I had brought my speedlite with me, but as I powered it on, it popped once, and then turned itself off. I guess I had a dud battery… It was light out anyways, and the show went on! Outside, I shot with my 50mm, the trusty steed she is.
Indoors, I set up both my Yongnuo speedlites with softboxes attached to them, connected to my Cowboy Studio wireless triggers: one camera left, one camera right. I also was forced to then use my 18-55mm EFS kit lens for the rest of the shoot since a 50mm just simply doesn’t give me the range I want.
