If you like to take pictures of food for a blog, or just to share with your friends on Instagram, you can improve your food photography by following these food photography tips.

Lighting Is Key

It’s important to be careful with lighting for food. The lighting that you use for food is back-light because it will help show off the texture of the food and even show the steam coming off hot food. If you want your food to look super fresh, remember the backlighting to avoid plain, flat images. If you do nothing else, do this.

Backgrounds Should Be Interesting

While you want the food to be the main thing in the photo, the backgrounds are important too and should be interesting. A nice idea is a blurred table-scape featuring the food in focus, as well as perhaps some of the ingredients that are in the food in whole form to bring out thoughts of the flavors in the viewer.
