What if Wednesday: Food Photography Follow-Up

Margherita Pizza

As promised in last week’s food photography post – a few of my shots as I’m working on my skills. As mentioned, food photography can be quite difficult – so far my biggest frustration is how shiny everything looks – I really don’t use as much oil as each of these pics would suggest. I think this has to do with the light I’m shooting in – the most repeated tip I’ve heard is that I need to shoot in natural daylight. As of yet, I haven’t figured out how to actually be home to cook when it’s still light out (darn daylight savings!)

Skirt steak, crisp roasted potatoes and sauteed spinach

I am happy with my camera upgrade…the Canon G11. With it’s low light setting have even been able to capture some decent shots at night. I say decent lightly…the good news is everything has tasted better than it looks onscreen.

The potatoes were a hit – we used a Cook’s Illustrated parboil technique before roasting them in the oven. Mmmmm…

xoxo, Jill.

    The key considerations for food shots include the angle of the dish, the dish composition, and that the room in which picture is being taken has a good amount of light.
