Five tips for your Food Photography Session.
With our years of experience, kpstudios knows how to make people drool over images of your food. Getting the best shot, however, sometimes requires a collaborative effort. Following these five tips will help you prepare for your session.
Prepare your Location.
Natural light can bring out the colors in your food, but you need plenty of it. Choose a location next to a large window to ensure you have enough diffused light to bring out colors and contrast.
Timing is Everything.
Natural light brings out different colors at different times of the day. If you want to emphasize blues and greens, schedule your session earlier in the day. Choose a time in the evening if you want to bring out reds and yellows.
Make it Fresh!
If your food is supposed to be hot, it should be steaming. Make sure you have enough staff on hand to deliver your food at its best.
Dress for the Occasion.
Blandly colored food can look very unappetizing. Liven up the image with colorful garnish, and check the edges of plates for stray food.
Set the Stage.
Your food should be the center of attention, but being prepared with props can mean the difference between a good image and a great image. Be prepared with plates that harmonize with your food, elegant silverware, napkins, or tablecloths.
