Lets talk about food and pics. Every lady must have all the skills to take the perfect food photo. You have to show the culinary art while making sure it suits your blog or Instagram. So here are some tips on how how to take the perfect food photo.
Tip 1 is to choose plates or bowls in opposite colors compared to the food you are taking a pic of. In this way it will create a magical contrast. For example a steak with a side salad and cherry tomatoes with asparagus, you should pick a yellow plate. The color wheel will really help with this. Choose color on the opposite side of the color wheel to create a contrast. This example will look amazing.
Tip 2 is the lighting. Yes be that lady that carries around different colored lights or flash lights. Make sure the lighting suit the meal. Natural light is best or you can carry around a flash light that resembles natural light. Never ever use your flash. It will always ruin the photo. Natural light or flashlight. A warm colored flashlight will be a great light source. Amazon has some amazing ones.
Tip 3 is the backdrop. Make sure the background compliments the food and plate/bowl. If the table cloth at the restaurant doesn’t look as nice keep a scarf or a square necktie in your bag to use as a backdrop. It will change your life. Shein has some amazing cheaper square neck ties in the most beautiful of patterns.
Tip 4 is angles. Try to always take your food photos from above for a social effect. You can try to take it from the side but above is best. Send me some of your photos, I would love to see them. @theelegantaristocrat_
