Dinner in the Dark – Unique Food Photography by Vanessa K. Rees

Vanessa K. Rees is an award-winning photographer whose list of clients include prestigious names like Food & Wine Magazine, H.Bloom, and Ralph Lauren. She loves all kinds of photography but she’ particularly drawn to still lifes, food, and lifestyle photography. Her passion for getting the lighting ‘just right’ drives her to use up to eight different light sources for one shot. Most of the time though, only one or two light sources does the trick. She said: “The best thing I ever did for my photography is put the camera down and start collecting props. I love telling stories with props. When the right lighting is paired with the right props, magic happens.” Vanessa currently lives in Brooklyn with her boyfriend and a fat yellow cat.
