Most SAHMs keep themselves busy at home by dabbling in a little blogging. Some who are food bloggers know the importance of taking quality pictures of food to post on their blogs. If you are one of those food bloggers, your goal is, of course, to make your readers drool and head off to the nearest restaurant to satisfy their cravings. What must you remember in taking photos of food, then?
Take pictures of food at close range, to be able to capture their texture and various colors. If you’re taking photos of cottage cheese, for instance, you’d want to catch all those bumpy curds. You’d want them to appear three-dimensional, and you can achieve this through the proper play of light and shadow. Just experiment with the settings your camera allows.
Think of contrast. That rich red saucy dish would look great against a white tablecloth background. Don’t forget garnishing, as they add drama to your food photos.
