I’ve always been inspired by someone who can create amazing food in the kitchen and then photograph it.

The photos below are a examples of food photography. I used continuous light to capture all of the photos in this blog post.

With food photography, I’ve learned to take photos from all angles. The more unique, the better. The angle that I appreciate the most with food photography, is from above. This view allows the whole dish, ingredients, and utensils to be visible. I also like to show detail such as flower or crumbs. I tried to allow enough negative space in these photos so that the food would stand out more in the frame. Food photography requires a creative eye. You can also bring someone in these photos to sprinkle flower on a dish, or reach for a tomato as shown below.
