“My favorite place to shoot in my house is right next to our office windows. There are three windows formed into a bay window shape. This provides light from three angles, which gives me an excellent “scrape” of light.”
Food photography is a skill and an art. It takes time to develop your skills with things like using the manual settings on your camera. It takes time to be able to create artistically composed food photos.
Topics Covered (48 Pages):
- Technical Tips
- Composition Tips
- Lighting Tips
- Props and Set Up Tips
- Post Processing & Editing Tips
- General Workflow
There are some foods that just photograph better than others. When you’re getting started, don’t practice with brown, flat or generally blah foods. Choose foods that you know are going to look beautiful with the right lighting and set up.
My hope is that these tips and tricks will be practical, easy to read, and ultimately help you take food photos that make people say, “I am dying to eat that right now!”
