Let’s talk for a moment about food photography. I. have. no. idea. what. I’m. doing. I go on some blogs and their food photos are mouthwatering. Every detail is perfect, the photo is clear and the background has all the perfect touches in it. I have tried to watch YouTube videos showing me how to take food photos… but I just know nothing about cameras. Or Photography. So whenever it is time to take photos of the foods I make, I just use the tips I know and hope that I get a good shot or 2.
I’m hoping that with practice and time I will get better and learn more. For right now it’s taking 10-15 shots and finding the 3-4 that might make the cut to actually post on my blog. If anyone has ANY photo tips, I am happy to hear them!
