Behind the Scenes: Food Photography


In conjunction with NYP’s Campus Expansion, staff and students from NYP’s School of Interactive & Digital Media (SIDM) are designing decorative hoarding installations for five new campus sites.  These hoardings will give a glimpse of what the new facilities have to offer, and as part of the hoarding designs, we wanted to illustrate the wide variety of food which can be found in the new campus sites.  So when the design team needed suitable photos of local food, Chef Andy, Chef Nicholas and Chef Vangeline from the School of Chemical & Life Sciences (SCL) stepped in to help!

COMMS Photographer Cheng Hong Ong sets the stage at the SIDM photography studio.
The result was a collaborative food photo shoot by SIDM, SCL and the Communications Department (COMMS). The one-day photo shoot featured ice kacang, laksa, wanton noodles, a salad and a bowl of yoghurt with fresh fruits diving in.

Enjoy the behind the scenes photos!
No props here. In case you are wondering, all the food in the photos is real.

Quite possibly the most beautiful spoonful of laksa we'll ever see.
