Food photography is definitely one of the most challenging types of photography. Just like a painting, a photographer has to start with a blank canvas and build up slowly on the image, layer by layer. The photograph of the food has to be carefully constructed until it reaches the right balance of art and reality.
Every piece in the photograph has to be perfectly placed by the photographer. It is like a story. Whether you plan to shoot an after-party cocktail or a roasted chicken made at the farm, you are telling a story to your audience. Though this might seem complicated, it is really not. Here are 5 easy tips you can use to improve your skills at food photography and to tell your audiences better stories.
