Chicago Style

The Chicago Style hot dog, not to be confused with the Coney Dog, Slaw Dog, Chili Dog, or Italian Style Dog. I think everyone gets my point, there are a lot of different ways to serve hot dogs! Each of these recipes is a combination of several ingredients that definitely need to be accompanied by a napkin. However, the deliciousness of all these ingredients combined, pose a little dilemma when it comes to photographing them.

The combinations {though yummy} can get a little muddy in presentation. So the task at hand is how to photograph all the components clearly and beautifully {while also keeping everything looking appetizing!}. With every recipe shot, we clearly identify each of our ingredients, then assemble the recipe in a way that showcases each of them without being too obvious with placement {nothing too perfect!}. Sometimes it can take hours getting these tiny details just perfect. It may seem like a tedious process but in the end the shot is what makes all the time and effort worth it!
