The other day, a friend told me that my food pictures here on the blog looked like I’d stolen them!
Now, obviously, the photos are mine and he knows that – he meant it as a compliment and I certainly took it as one!
I get asked a lot about how I go about taking my food pictures and the gear I use. The truth is, I don’t have a lot of camera equipment and what I do have isn’t top of the line. I’m mostly self-taught but I’ve had some mentoring from some great and generous photographers over the last few years.
So I was wondering… would people be interested in a series of spread out posts with some tips and tricks for shooting food that I’ve picked up or devised on my own along the way? Simple stuff that won’t break the bank?
Keep in mind, I’m not a professional and as I stated above, I’m mostly self-taught and I improvise a lot. I don’t know if my way is the right way but I seem to get good results. I promise to try and keep to things that are inexpensive to implement.
If so, what kinds of things would you want to read about? Gear? Props? Lighting? Styling? Something else I haven’t thought of?
Drop me a line in the comments and let me know if you like the idea or if you have a suggestion for a “Tips and Tricks” post.
