Food Photography Tips

I have always been keen in photography but have never had the chance to pursue it. I am always amazed at fellow foodies’ gadget and photography skills and styles. I’ve always wished to learn a thing or two from them and today I did. Let me take you to a journey to the secrets of digital food photography.

Today, I’ll share with you Submerryn’s Amazing Food Photography Tip #1:


Tip #1 SMILE

To get the best result in the food you are photographing, make sure YOU SMILE while taking the pictures. The food will look its best and ever so inviting :P

Lol… If only food photography is THAT simple! Look out for Submerryn’s Amazing Food Photography Tip #2 coming up soon, you have just GOT to read it! :D

By the way, here is also Submerryn’s FAILED Food Photography Collection #1

When needed, please rearrange the food to make them look more presentable. The arrangement of the food is very IMPORTANT! Food is supposed to look like food and nothing else BUT food! :P

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AHEAD FOLKS! :D
