Do you like taking pictures of your delectable creations and then posting them online? The only obstacle is that it doesn’t come out the way you want it to. Every photo is a careful planning process. Photos tell a story. Here are 5 tips on how to improve your food photography techniques.
1. Create the Right Angle
Photos are all about the angle at which you hold the camera. The camera can face any direction. Experiment with different angles. Instead of using the same angle think about the camera placement. How do you want to convey your food to the audience? Test angles overhead, to the side, or tilted.
2. You Subject in the Main Focus
Don’t include anything in the background. Your dish is the main attention. Take objects out of the background. Use as much empty space to convey the story. Objects like cups, the counter, or fabrics make up the picture.
3. Keep it Natural
Don’t go all out. Keep the photo simple. Simple is best. Use pure lighting. And don’t go all out with the effects. Don’t let audiences lose focus of your presentation.
4. Using Lines and Layers
It’s all about how you align your display. Use a few kitchen props to create lines for layered effects. You can create plenty of cool designs if you shoot the photo from above. It meets the eyes of the audience drawing them in. Examples to use are spoons, ingredients, or a little scoop of ice cream.
5. Bring Out the Color
Color is everything. Make colors stand. Aside from creating the scene, pay attention to the color. Select colors that are neutral in tone. Colors that pop out are the best. Choose colors that amplify your subject to make it hook audiences.
