If you are a foodie, you can relate to the immense temptation that comes with taking photographs of amazing meals. Well, this temptation is irresistible, and sooner rather than later you will find yourself snapping pictures of that meal. The following tips will help you take even better photos and get more people to appreciate good tasting meals.
1. Move Around As Much As You Can
Don’t take that literally, what we mean when we say that you should move around is that you should take the photos from multiple angles. The biggest detriment to food photography is focusing on the meal from just one angle. Ensure that if possible, you take pictures of the food from at least five angles and compare how the photos look. You are sure to note some very stark differences and through that improve your skill significantly.
2. Make the Sun and Moon Your Friends
Natural lighting is one of the best ingredients when it comes to stunning food photographs. While most photographers will want to use artificial lighting, the veterans know that natural lighting does the trick. Make use of the sun and the moon depending on where you are and the time that you are taking the photograph. If you find that the lighting is not good, moving the plate to a place with better lighting will do the trick. One thing to note is that not all food photos have to be on the kitchen counter. Feel free to explore.
3. The Fewer Items the Better
Decluttering is one of the best things you can try to do when taking photographs of meals. Deviate from the idea that you need to parade all your best cutlery in the same photograph in which your meal will appear in. If you can get a clear shot of the meal alone, then you have unlocked the matrix.
