5 Quick Tips for Food Photography
Want to take better photos of food? There are a few easy ways to do just that, whether you’re a pro or a beginner.
Photos of food are perfect for capturing a great meal out, and have an inherent artistic appeal. It’s not a coincidence that countless famous artists choose to paint fruit bowls and other foods! And in the age of Instagram, food photography has become even more in-demand; it’s one of the quickest ways to get new followers!
Read on then, for five powerful tips that will transform the quality of your food photography.
1. Color is King
If you were to try using one of those ‘AI scene recognition’ cameras on a modern mobile phone, you would find that when you pointed it at a plate of fruit, it would jack the saturation all the way up. While this feature is useless more often than not, it is on to something in this case! You may wish to follow suit in your camera’s settings, or in post processing.
That’s because cranking up color is a way to make any plate of food look immediately more appetizing. Think as well about the colors on the plate – how are they separated? Could a dollop of red ketchup help bring out the other colors?
When taking portrait photographs, you likely spend a little time (at least) thinking about lighting. Is Rembrandt lighting the right choice for this subject?
Food is a little less dynamic, but it can likewise benefit from the right lighting. Try moving your plate nearer the window for more dramatic shadows, or bring a candle over.
3. Think Composition
How will you shoot the plate? Top down is a popular choice, but you could also try an extreme close up on one element in order to create a depth effect. Likewise, you might want to think about what the angle and distance from the food says about that food. Do you want to make it looks light and delicate? Or large and imposing?
4. Consider the Background
The background is just as important as the food itself. This is one of the reasons for the popularity of the ‘top down’ approach – it removes a potentially chaotic and unruly background and allows you to focus on the food and the table cloth.
But perhaps the environment can add to the photo? In which case, positioning the meal in front of your dining partner, a view, or perhaps a piece of art on the wall – any of these things can improve the overall effect.
Finally, think about the condition of the food. When serving a plate of food, many chefs will wipe away any sauce from the edge of the plate – as this can impair the visual effect. You should think the same way – wipe away any mess, make sure that your food is arranged neatly, and heck – you could even add a little water to those apples to make them look shinier! That’s what the pros do, and it can work wonders for you too.
