Food Photography: Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich!

This was an interesting shoot because I wasn’t sure how to handle the sandwich. I tried doing several shots with a finished sandwich but in doing so the bananas were hidden and I really wanted to see them.

That’s how I ended up with this layout. Now the bananas and peanut butter are clear.  And yes it just looks like bread with peanut butter and banana on it instead of a sandwich but I’m ok with that.

For lighting I shot this in front of my softbox with some reflectors. I also did a used a slightly shallow depth of field so that I could blur everything but the peanut butter and bananas.
