Photographer of Making Artisan Pasta Shares How to Shoot Like a Pro

September 14, 2011
Steve Lagato, a professional food photographer whose credits include Making Artisan Pasta by Aliza Green, shares how to shoot like a pro in the Philadelphia Daily News.

Legato told the Daily News that "his camera of choice is a $2,500 Canon 5D Mark II. However, he's not averse to whipping out his iPhone to take a few shots. But he does say 'ouch' at the often-poor quality of food porn posted on sites like Foodspotting. Legato, in the biz for 12-plus years, has more than 40 cookbooks to his credit .... And he's quick to say that you don't have to have fancy equipment to take good pictures."
