Hello and welcome to a very special and last in the series under the tag 'Food Photography and Styling'. I call this series as a benchmark in the history of 'Yummy Food'. This series has not only given my blog an whole new ...
"In today’s foodie/cellphoneography/Instagram world, everyone is a food photographer. It’s almost customary to take a photo of your food before digging in. Some restaurants have even had to instate a “no photography” policy because patrons complain about the constant flash of cameras.
Food photography, however, plays a huge role across many different businesses. Previously limited to the food industry (restaurants, markets, specialty food stores) and food-dedicated publications, food photography now spans a wide breath of editorial publications and commercial/advertising campaigns. Food is most often associated with comfort and happiness, so it’s no surprise that clients like American Express and CNN are now seeking food photographers."
I need to start this by explaining that I am not anti-blogger nor anti-magazine. I believe they can play a vital role in the success that restaurants achieve. They also can unwittingly play a role in hampering that success.
This is a great video to start things off. Food photography and food styling go hand-in-hand and this video gives you a glimpse of both. Not only that, but it gives you some idea of just how complicated the process of making appetizing food pictures really is.
The goal of food photography and styling is to make the food in the image look interesting and delicous. This can be a bit of a challege because you are essentially trying to caputure the look and feel of a 3D object in a two dimentional picture. That's where camera angles come in. The proximity and angle of the shot can both add and detract from the success of the image, so here's some of the best camera angles to consider when composing a good shot.
"One of the biggest problems in America is obesity, too tightly belted to thoughtless consumption of food we are not proud of. So what’s wrong with showing off beautiful food? Isn’t this a mindful approach that checks in with those who love us – in other words the opposite of unconscious overeating? Sharing photos of our food is gourmet; hiding what we eat is gourmand."
Today’s community feature takes us to the kitchen of a true master of food photography. Read on to learn about the perfect cup of tea, cooking for the King of Thailand & the most essential tips for taking better food photos.

You can't take great pictures of food without great equipment. Now, we all have our personal preferences, so I'm not saying there is a "best" or "perfect" camera lens to use for food photography, but I'm a Nikon fan, so here's a bit about an 85mm Micro PC Lens. It's really expensive for most people, but it gives you an idea of yet another important component to the very complex process that is food photography.
Now that you've got an idea of what food photography really is from the previous video, I figured this would be a nice follow-up article that highlights some elements that need considering when constructing a good food image. The tips are fairly basic, but can still make a huge difference in the photo. Enjoy!
When thinking or talking about all the cool things involved with food photography, it's easy to get obsessed with the newest and most unique, but I think it can be valuable to occasionally take a step back and see where it all started and how it's evolved over the years. So with that in mind, here's a bit about how food was depicted in the past and how the ways of showing food has changed over time.
Lighting is a very important part of any photography, but especially important for food photography. You obviously need light to capture an image, but what's really important is that you pay attention to the highlights and reflections the light creates because good lighting enhances and captures the essence of the food, but poor lighting can make it look fake. Here's some information about different lighting techniques as well as good and bad uses of highlights and reflections.
