Photographing food

8 Jan

I have been looking at a lot of food blogs lately and love the styling of the food in many of them and I would love to improve my photography in styling food and other objects.  Some key things which I think I need to incorporate:

  1. Using beautiful objects as backgrounds and accents (beautiful  tablecloths, plates, cutlery, etc).  Adding different textures and pops of colour add interest. I might see if I can pick up some odds and ends in car-boot sales and vintage stores through the year.
  2. Using fresh, colourful beautiful food.
  3. Need a tripod.  I have been resting my camera on bags of pasta but it does limit the level which photos can be taken.

Here is some photo inspiration …
