This past weekend the KOR team traveled to New Orleans, LA for the 2017 PMA Fresh Summit on behalf ofDuPont Teijin Films™. There were over 19,500 attendees and over 1,200 products displayed at the show. The show represented how today’s ideas are reshaping tomorrow’s produce and floral landscape.

DuPont Teijin Films™ is the global market leader in providing safe, consistent and convenient packaging solution for over 60 years.

The KOR team showcased the ease of cooking with DuPont’s Mylar Steam Pouches to cook the vegetables for a hearty Jambalaya that was served. Open the pouch, add the vegetables, season to your liking and microwave for a couple minutes to enjoy the vegetables perfectly cooked.

A BIG thank you to theDuPont Teijin Films™ team for the excellent opportunity and a congratulations for a job well done!

Food Photography: A Team Effort!

IMG_3631_EDITEver look at a magazine or recipe book and wonder how the food looks so angelic and pristine, yet realistic at the same time? Here at KOR, we are well-versed in everything revolving around food, especially photography. In fact, we host professional photo shoots for our clients on a regular basis. Our culinary staff takes food styling to the next level — and when combined with great photography; it makes for one-of-a-kind photos. To pull off a successful photo shoot KOR-style, we follow the process below.

1) Shoot In Stages: Always, always remember to shoot in stages. Although it may be more time-consuming during the shoot, it can significantly reduce the time spent on back-and-forth post-production edits. At the shoot, we start with the most basic set-up and gradually add more elements into the shot. First, start with just a shot of the surface you are using. Then, take a shot of a clean plate on your surface. Next, shoot your product on your plate without any garnish. Proceed by taking rounds of photos where you are adding in items one at a time — like a mint garnish, a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, a light layer of sauce, or background props. By shooting in stages, you give your design team the ability to more easily create composite photos so they can easily add or remove items based on client and buyer feedback.
