Earlier this summer I had the opportunity to participate in a photo shoot for Donattela Bar & Grill in Bobcaygeon. Ned Kovacevic, the owner of Donattela, asked us to photograph some new menu items they’ve added for their summer season. Knowing the quality of food that they’re known for, I jumped at the chance.
I knew that the shots had to be perfect, so I enlisted the services of Fred Thornhill Photography. For this shoot, I acted the art director and assistant.
The photography we captured really shows off the intensity of the flavours of each dish. In total, we shot 9 different meals ranging from calamari, to salad, Lamb Chops, pasta and pizzas. Check out the gallery below for some of the highlights of the shoot.
After the photo shoot, the images were edited and colour corrected by Spitting Images using Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Adobe Camera Raw.
The photos were used in outdoor posters and for a new take-out menu, which was designed and printed by Spitting Images.
If you’re in Bobcaygeon and looking for a classy place to eat a great meal, head over to Donattela Bar and Grill. If you’re in the need of photography, whether it’s food, portraits, pets, events or real estate, contact Spitting Images and Fred Thornhill Photography.
