In case you don’t have a food stylist, at least you need to have a chef who is ready to work enthusiastically when it comes to plating the dish.
If you are photographing for a long time, then, you’ll have to keep replacing the contents of the dish when required. Natural light is likely to be the most satisfying for all subjects and food is no exception. This builds curiosity and drama in the subject and also permits you to make the maximum use of the light available. Today, he is trying an experiment, by training his antiquated film camera on a plate of cheese and fruit all the while bobbing to tunes streamed from the internet to his touch sensitive media device that can also make calls, sometimes.
Anyway, you know that it is pretty impossible without a food stylist and a lot of equipment to make that dish look mind blowing. If you are shooting with a shallow DOF, then you will have to keep the focal point near to the front of the image. But, you need to use a little bit of your imagination instead of using the computer only for technical chores. This kind of request always makes me smile as I have to admit that, yes, I take a lot of pictures of food! Comments are moderated (everything constructive is approved), so they may take a bit to appear. I take on private and commercial commissions, my stock photography is managed through Alamy and Ingram Publishing.


Any food item catches our eyes even if we haven’t yet tasted it; this charm lies in the way they are presented.
You truly are lucky if you have a team that is ready to work hard and also a great location that permits you to throw out some lighting effects. In this case, you need to see to it that the grill marks are perfectly straight and crossed. When shooting one particular object, don’t focus on its pieces which are far from the lens.
Make sure to turn the automatic flash off when you are getting ready to take a picture, the flash will ruin a perfectly pretty photo! Some of my very favorite food photos were taken while I was standing on a chair directly above the dish I was photographing. You may want to frame your dish slightly off center, but this should be an artistic choice you have made and not an accident! I won't say that I'm the best food photographer out there, but over the years as I've grown as a food blogger I've learned a few simple tricks that really help me show off my cooking creations.
When it comes to sushi roll, the pieces should be arranged in a charming way and no other contents like sauces and garnishes should be detracting from the image.
You may need to move your dish toward a window or even take it outside to get enough pretty light in your photograph. You may want to move your dish over slightly if something weird or unsightly is showing in the background (like a sink full of dirty dishes!). You may feel a bit silly standing on a chair in your kitchen while taking pictures of a loaf of bread, but try different angles as much as possible. So one of the important points in making your food loveable is to present it in a good way. And, after you've take a few pictures, take a bite or slice a piece off so the photo looks like the food is in the process of being eaten.


And, this also means you have to plan ahead a little-if your dinner won't be ready until 7pm but the sun goes down at 6:30pm, sadly you probably won't be able to get a well lit picture. And, after you've take a few pictures, take a bite or slice a piece off so the photo looks like the food is in the process of being eaten. A person should get fascinated by the look of the dish you made and it should urge him to taste it. If you've just made a delicious looking salad you may not necessarily want to photograph it on a green plate, as the colors may clash and not look as pretty as other colors would look when paired together.
All these little details can really make a picture pop and give it that little extra interest that it wouldn't otherwise have. If you've just made a delicious looking salad you may not necessarily want to photograph it on a green plate, as the colors may clash and not look as pretty as other colors would look when paired together. You don't want to get so close that you can't tell what the food is, but you don't want a ton of negative space either. All these little details can really make a picture pop and give it that little extra interest that it wouldn't otherwise have.
You will definitely learn a lot of things watching each one of these pictures that what are the techniques and art of food photography. Do not forget to let me know which one is the best photo in your opinion and which food you like the most.
