There are many ways and styles for taking pictures, but for food photography try apply the following to get the best results:
- Do NOT use flash while taking your pictures.
- As much as possible, use natural light to take your photo. Take your picture near a large window but not under direct sunlight.
- Allow your food to be the focus of the picture. Use solid color backgrounds that contrast with your plate. This is not a must, but noisy print backgrounds at times take away from the beauty of the plate.
Are you ready for this adventure? I am!
Be creative and above all, have fun.
