ezCater is my latest food photography client here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They are sending me to restaurants all over the city that provide catered food to make about 20 photos of their offerings. The final shot, the "hero shot," as it is called, is getting as many of those potentially 20 dishes in the camera frame as possible. If I got all of them in, every dish would look really small, not to mention there often is not space to make a shot like that as I shoot right in the regular customer area of the restaurant. So I ask the restaurant owner which dishes are the ones she/he wants featured, then focus on getting as many of those as possible in the shot, like the one you see above.
