"As a generalist photographer, Valentina Deneken covers families, weddings, portraits, food, products, and even video and graphic design. However, it’s rare to find a generalist with the skill of a specialist in each of these genres! Her food and product photography really caught our eye with its shadow-filled moody atmosphere and love of contrasting colors. Valentina has a great eye for background details, intentionally choosing marble, wood, and other backgrounds that emphasize colors, textures, and forms within the frame. She frequently chooses overhead compositions that explore shape and form for an artistic still-life take on the commercial world of food!"
