Thanks to the power of social media, people are whipping out their cameras for just about anything- even food! And although some dishes may taste better than they look, that doesn't mean you should deprive your virtual feed from visually pleasing food content.
For a start:
1- Minimalism is key
Let your food become the centre of attention, instead of the props. While the stunning table decor deserves a spot on the 'gram, try to maintain the focus on your delectables first.
2- Too much filter spoils the beauty
Let the beauty of the food speak on its own via its natural setting, instead of using filters or over-editing.
3- Angles, angles
Embrace your creativity by free-styling different ways of photo-taking. Some food may look good from the side or up-close- either way find the best angle that will enhance interest to your shot.
4- Know your lighting
It's said that lighting from the side accentuates and creates contrasts of textures of the food, especially for pastries and meat.
