Food photography failures. Chances are you’ve struggled with it, I certainly have. Frustrated with not seeing any improvement in my foodie photos I sought for help in books, workshops and beautifully captured images by others dedicated to the subject matter. (Yes, geek alert, I know.) Then I hit a learning curve.
At around the same time I met fellow foodie and blogger Sumayya of Pukka Paki. Her insightful site is dedicated to Pakistani cuisine – something I know nothing of and am keen to learn about. We became fast friends fueled by our interests in food, photography and things in between. She kindly invited me to write a guest post on food photography. So join me here for 5 tips on how to improve your images of food. The two dishes I included as examples were based off of Sumayya’s recipe for Prawn Karahi and Coconut & Cinnamon Rice – both deliriously fragant and wonderful to taste, particularly if you like heat.
I hope you find the tips helpful. If you have your own insights to share I would love to hear them.
