Find The Window!
This instruction is really working. Why? Because window is the best lighting for your food photography. Natural sun lighting will make your objects look naturally fresh. But, be careful with the time. Capturing with sun light in the afternoon is a bad idea. It will make your plate look so yellow. Set the time on 8-10 AM or 3-5 PM.
Put Some Bae(s).
You need to style your food well before snapping a pictures. Put a basic table cover, use a white plain plate or bowl and make sure your fork or spoon are clean enough. The dirty view makes your food no longer fresh and delicious. Don’t be afraid about giving your plate a sprinkle of garnish, or maybe little other things to decorating your objects, to make your food photography more appetizing. But lots of garnish can make your photos look bad
Be Friend With Oil and Water
Yes, we know that too oily makes your food looks ‘unhealthy’. But, some of the food photographer use oil to make the objects more shiny and on point, this tip is available for capturing some dish, such us pasta, bread or maybe baked food. But, if you want to capture fresh salad, fruit or another veggie photos, little sprinkle of water can make the ingredients look even more fresh. That’s what we call the power of shine.
Don’t Take Too Long
The truth is food doesn’t keep it’s appetizing looks for long, so as a photographer please be well prepared and able to shoot quickly after it’s been cooked. Yes, before it melts, collapses or changes color. For beginning, make the concept first, prepare it before the food is ready. And when it’s ready, snap!
