The Secret Technique of Taking Awesome Food Photos

Try Multiple Angles and Different Exposure Settings

When your food photo shoot is taking place, it’s a good idea to take a lot of pictures, but make sure to use different angles—you don’t always have to take shots from an overhead or seated view. See how the images turn out when you shoot from a level view. Get creative. The more images you have to choose from, the better. landscape photography artists landscape photography ideas

Lighting

Natural-Lighting

DO NOT use an in-camera flash. If you are using a standard camera app or other camera with a flash, try to use as much external lighting as possible. The flash from the camera/or camera phone app is going to be to direct and is much more likely to wash out parts of the image. If you have a good natural light source like a window, use it to your advantage. landscape photography artists landscape photography ideas

Have Something in the Background

Having a contrasting background can really make make food pop out in the picture. Just like the dish itself, having a well placed fork or the angle of a square plate can change the look of the image drastically. Don’t crowd the space, just accent the area. landscape photography artists landscape photography ideas
