10 Food Photography Tips For Beginners
10 STEPS
Repetitive geometric shapes look good to the eye.
1
Use layers of contrasting texture and height to add depth.
2
Show off what’s inside! Slices or even bites out of food make the scene feel lived in.
3
Don’t be afraid to get a little messy!
4
Shoot overhead to highlight repetitive geometric shapes and symmetry.
5
Shoot facing the light or with the light hitting the food from the side. See how the shadows change?
6
Neutral colored props let the food shine.
7
Use small props and close up shots to make the food seem bigger.
8
Props with a matte finish reduce glares and distracting reflections.
9
Shoot at a 45° angle to show the top and side of your food at the same time.
