Mouthwatering Melbourne – A Taste of the Melbourne Food Scene

We recently spent 12 days in Melbourne, Australia, on a magazine assignment, getting a taste of the Melbourne food scene for a story we called ‘Mouthwatering Melbourne’. I took 4,712 images.

Because of the tight schedule, one of my goals was to shoot it all with natural light, no flash. With a lot of these shoots, we literally had an hour to shoot the restaurant, the food and the chef.

I decided to put the images together in a little video, just to give you an idea as to how we work, as well as get those taste-buds tantalized. All photos in this time-lapse video are straight from the camera. Watch it full-screen in HD with a glass of wine!

    Wow! Looks delicious! I had no idea Melbourne was known for its food!

    1. Lara Dunston

      Hi Joanna – Melbourne (and Sydney too) easily has some of the world’s best eating. We’ve had more consistently great restaurant experiences here than any other city in the world. And at the top end, highly creative food based on the finest produce.

      We blame the Australian tourism bodies for the lack of awareness around the world of the country’s great culinary scenes. We’re trying to change that :)

      Thanks for RTing our little time-lapse on Twitter :)

    The food does look delicious, is it because it actually is or because photos are great? ;) Loved how you organized the video!

    1. Lara Dunston

      Thanks, Angela! The food in Melbourne has been amazing – some of the most extraordinary food we’ve ever eaten in our lives – but, yes, Terence’s photography is pretty amazing too :)
