Shooting food that is enticing, that looks fresh and makes your mouth water is extremely difficult. I hold professional foodie photogs in high regard. I’m not about to try and become a full-time food stylist with a tool kit and patience like no other. Still I try to capture details, colors, textures and settings that paint the food in a favorable light. It’s an area of photography that I’d really love to grow in.
Tricks I’ve Discovered
I don’t want these tactics to become a crutch but, they generally provide favorable results.
- Shoot at a Low Angle
- Use a Shallow Depth of Field
- Use Multiple Light Sources
- Accessories Can Make The Shot
- Toothpicks & Napkins Can Be Useful
