Let’s start off the week right, with a look at a new royalty free stock series, available exclusively ( sorry iStockphoto/Getty ! 😛 ) at Stocksy, the new photographer co-operative stock photo agency. You know I’m from St. Louis, and here in STL, we love our barbeque. This is probably due to our proximity to the Kansas City stockyards. Maybe it’s to do with us being “Gateway to the West“, and all the travelers bringing their favorite “Q” to town. Whatever. Who doesn’t like some good barbeque?
When I was thinking up new ideas for subjects for my exclusive stock portfolio for Stocksy, I realized I don’t have a restaurant series, and what says fun and good times in a restaurant then people gathered around for ribs and cornbread and the rest? We’ve got a great new place in town that includes treats like a maple bacon crunch milkshake, if you can believe it (it’s awesome!).
So, I gathered up a multi-ethnic group of Caucasian, African-American and Indian-American models, ordered up a few tables full of food and drinks, and spent a few hours creating a new series. There’s a friendly server in the group, helping to choose from the menu, kids chewing on baby back ribs, and a group of friends celebrating the occasion with mixed drinks and a variety of beers. This series is light on the processing (except for one image), with clean colors and lots of copyspace. Lighting is natural and not overly bright or fake.
