Has the chef and waiter frowned upon you for taking pictures for so long that the food becomes cold? Are people staring at you when you snap pictures of food? Get it done fast with these handy tricks.., as usual, there are only two tricks revealed in this post.
1. If it is not in the right angle, then it is in the wrong angle!
Yep, thanks to Monica from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. for the tip! Photos of food especially with circle plates or circular arrangements look the best from the exact top. If you don’t have the camera lens pointed right on top of your food, then you are getting it wrong. The second way to do food-porn photography is to place the camera such that the lens sees the utensil, the dish and the background in a 20-50-30 ratio. Focus on the dish and blur the background!
2. It has to be sharp to make the mouth water
There are a few tricks to make a normal photo look good. In case of food photography, please find a good table as a background or a good café! This is essential. Next, make sure that the camera is focussed so good that the dish looks sharp. If it is not, DO NOT add sharpness to it later on! This can make the picture look bad. So, get it right on the first go. BLUR the background! Increasing the exposure and adding a little bit of contrast and highlight give additional “likes” and “hearts” for sure.
Now, if people are still glaring or staring at you, then give them a lesson on Instagram food photography and they will forever be indebted to you. Go enjoy your photography and eat your delicious food!
