Feast Your Eyes
Get a glimpse behind the scenes of Mike Lata’s sustainable seafood dinner party
Written by Brys Stephens
If you had to guess the mood around the dinner table during the caviar-studded seafood feast at Mike Lata’s house featured in this month’s issue of Charleston, “really silly” probably wouldn’t be your first guess. But as it turns out, getting slaphappy about the (necessarily) somewhat contrived nature of a photo shoot is a good way to conjure up a smile for the camera. It’s pretty much impossible to get great shots without multiple takes, so repetition during a shoot like this is par for the course, and sets a funny mood.
