Food Photography touches upon the most primal emotions desires and senses in people. Without a doubt, it can be one of the most difficult types of photography to get right as a beginner, but if you keep a few good tips in mind, food photography can be quite easy to do well and satisfying to complete. In this article, we'll introduce the elements critical to good food photography.
A solid understanding of your camera.
You'll need a good grounding in the operation of the features of your camera, especially those concerning basic operation, focus, exposure compenstation, white balance, image resolution and size, and macro and flash modes operation.
Pick the highest resolution image format on your camera along with the lowest image compression setting. Often, images are enlarged and cropped for publication and the extra pixels produce better pictures.
Because food deteriorates quickly, you want to be ready to take pictures quickly without much delay after the food has been setup and arranged.
Freshly prepared, cleanly presented foods.
Just the same as attending a wedding, everything in food photography should be made fresh, and presented cleanly and promptly.
Food oxidizes and changes color and texture quickly, especially fruits. Ice cream melts at a rapid rate, so the shorter the time between scooping and picture taking, the better. (Unless melted ice cream is the point of the photo shoot.)
At the same time, you can't rush so fast that you leave bits of food here and there.
Keep the scene as pristine as possible. You'll find that a moment spent wiping the edge of a bowl clean, removing a stray bit of food, etc. will be time worth spending now vs. many more minutes in a photo editing program doing retouching work. Wipe up any stray gravies and sauces, remove any stray debris.
Balanced color choices.
A quick beginner's art class or book will have a basic color circle and complementary color chart for reference. In most cases, having a good selection of colors will enhance the presentation of the food.
For example, if you're taking pictures of red apples, a red background of almost the same color probably won't add as much spark to the apples as would another color such as yellow, green or even plain black.
Naturally, you can play around with the variations in color until you find a combination that suits your taste, or, if you've been a studious beginner, you can refer to your clippings folder (where you've collected numerous examples of photographs, advertisements, and other graphic images for just this purpose) to quickly find and come up with ideas when you can't do so right away.
