After few years that digital DSLRs were available in the market, many people have taken to photography as a hobby and are getting good results.
Although, the normal scenes captured are people and places, food is the new item being clicked by many. There many tricks in food photography to make a yummy-looking food photographs, and some of them are consolidated on this five techniques below. Aside from the techniques that are presented above, I have here additional tips to make food shooting interesting and produce more appealing shots. Maybe the the food is needed to be shoot in white background, in narrow depth of field or perhaps the crisp details are necessary.
If you can notice in cookbooks and stock photography sites, white tableware and stainless cutlery are being used.
If your shooting props, material and equipment are not enough, Photoshop can surely help you to achieved the kind of photo you wanted to have. Think about adding artificial smoke in using the your computer instead of using chemicals during shooting time.
Shoot the product in plain-colored background, white in particular, and simply change that background with a desirable one using the editing software.
Morphing, adjustment on color, contrast and brightness, noise reduction, temperature, monochromatic effects are only some of the basic things you can do for your image in Photoshop. If you feel the window light is too harsh, drape a white bed sheet over the window to mellow and diffuse the light. A bounce or reflector is just a piece of white material that is used to reflect light back on to the subject.
In this food photography lesson I will be explaining some of the very important food photography techniques. The cameras available in the market now are of high quality and help the photographer capture the real essence of the image being photographed. The evidence can be found your Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Picasa and different blogging platforms. It is done with group of professionals including nutrition specialist, food-stylist, chef and the photographers.
A bounce or reflector will fill any shadows and lighten dark areas on your shot. Use a piece of white foam core or white card board.
Read your camera’s instruction book to learn how to use manual mode; its easier than you think!


As soon as I get an apartment with sunlight, I’m going to set up some nicer camera shots. I am surely gonna take this as reference and try out I usually used to shoot photos using AV mode.
I use cardboard too, but get a bluish tint, now I realise that I really need to fiddle with the camera settings more (I use a point and shoot though) and use a tripod! I have started to use the Manual Mode on my camera now (still learning and playing) and this post answers so mnay of my questions.
A lot of good photographers I knw aren’t even comfortable sharing their photography tips with others.
I like that you showed a picture that included each of the instrumental pieces in your photos, and the difference in pictures simply from adjusting the shutter speed. I have been playing around with some different things, but I have not gotten the results I wanted. Not only do we have to work to get the right composition but we also have to get the lighting right too. How to photograph food photography relies upon very much on getting the right lighting, composition and clear, sharp focus.
The health benefit, taste and beauty are being looked into before deciding to publish the picture. Use nebulizer (a device that converts liquid into a fine spray like humidifier), combination of chemicals,  cigarettes, smoke pellets, incense stick or hot wet cotton balls to create steam effects. Spraying food with water or other liquid like corn syrup or cooking oil to enhance the freshness of the subject. Pins, toothpicks and glue are most popular materials to use to ‘pose’ the food in front of your camera. Browning agent can be used but if you are not satisfied with the result, you can manually paint the it using food coloring. The tricks and special effects on the photo can be easily added in the using Adobe Photoshop. I left the blinds closed, because the sun was very sharp, and I got plenty of light for this shot even with the blinds down.
For a stronger bounce, you could also use a piece of card board that has been wrapped with aluminum foil. Also int eh living and then to let more light in i pull the curtain to one side and sometimes i see the ppl passing peeing tp se ewhat i am doing.


I also usually take my pics at night because that’s when there are no kids grabbing at the food! Once these elements are combined, we then need to style the food in order to make it appealing. Tiny parts like sesame on a burger bun can be glued while little bit larger like raising and berries can be pinned. So, instead of using expensive and decorative China ware that draws the attention away from the dish, a subtle plain self colored plate makes the dish visually appealing.
Serving food in small amounts makes the plate look neat and thus makes the food more appealing. When the food on the plate is vibrant and colorful, the background should be a plain white. Food styling for product photography requires the viewers to shift their full attention to the shot. When people order something, they should get what they have pictured in their heads and not something totally different.
Go to a cafe or a snack bar and have a bite of something and I assure you something will hit you for an amazing shot.
To avoid the sliced fruit and vegetables turning into brown quickly, dip them into water with little amount of oxalic acid. For beverages that are too dark, water is being mixed to lighten the color and add sparkle to it. In case that the it the photos are to be incorporated in a graphic design, consult the graphic designer of what particular shot he or she needed for the project. The same goes with photography of food as the clean background of the plate provides a great frame for the perfect shot.
In the same way, for pale looking food, a dark background makes the dish come to life (not literally). Paper adds texture to the plate and the dish and gives it a rustic look that can never go out of style. The preparation and cooking process are good shots for food styling for product photography.
