Fun with Food Photography

Food photography, to be done right, is highly specialized requiring certain lighting and preparation. Plating the food becomes one of the more critical factors, making sure the food looks appetizing, mouth watering and delicious. High end restaurants plate their dishes so the meal is visually appealing. It can be a fine opportunity for anybody, even with a cell phone, to capture images of well presented food. Of course, you necessarily need to use available light, and don’t have the luxury of creating a backdrop which augments the presentation. Still, capturing a well plated dish can be rewarding, and fun to share with others. These images were taken with a DSLR in available light as presented to the table.
