Find an article online that provides tips for photographing food. Stage one: post what article you are going to summarize, so we can make sure I don't have people all summarizing the same article. (First person who posts a link to the article in this thread gets to claim that article for their work.)

Make sure the link works (not blocked from school), copy and paste it to this thread. Once that is done and we've checked for duplicates, read the article more thoroughly, go back and edit your post in this thread, and summarize the article, being sure to include specific tips listed in the article that you can use in your work. Your summary must be written in complete sentences with proper spelling and capitalization.

For food photography you should use natural lighting, find a good angle and good light source, and make sure there is no clutter around the food or in the area at all because it will distract people and the focus point will be taken away from the food. Make sure when you edit the picture of food not to change the hue and saturation as much because it may change the color of your food a non-realistic color. Don't use blurry pictures. Bright and vibrant photos will make the food look better just do not exaggerate it.

In order to take a proper picture for food photography, there are a few things you must make sure you do. According to the article, a good food photo "should evoke the food's best traits and its inherent deliciousness", bringing out the textures and colors of the dish. You should also use a good natural lighting, versus harsh light such as direct sunlight or flash. Angles also play a part in what distinguishes a good photo from a bad one, even with food. You want to capture it's "good side" so for example, if you are taking a photo of ice cream, you would take it at a 45 degree angle to keep focus on the contours of the scoops of ice cream. Adding details are also important. You should decorate the background, add props such as forks, spoons, or straws. The whole point of food photography is to be appealing and by following these tips, that is sure to happen.

In order to take a good photograph of a food item you must have the proper kit with the ability to take good quality photos. When taking photos of you must also try not to use flash for the photo. Always have a tripod ready just encase you need it and make sure you choose your props carefully. Make sure when you're taking the photo you find the best angle and remember to always trust your instincts. When taking the photo you also must make sure the food doesn't sit around for too long, And the photo doesn't have to be perfect. Any crumbs on the table may add to the photo. A little water added to the fruit may add to the photo overall for the better and last of all, always be prepared for the shoot.

To take good good food photography the article says that you need the first thing would be is lighting. lighting like any other still life and good place to do it is by a window to get the most natural lighting. The second is try to use some props and the arrangement of the food and not to cluster like using the rule of thirds.The third is to be quick so that is does not melt and so it can look it freshened. The fourth is add your own style to make it your own the fifth is to enhance it like try rubbing it with vegetable oil to give it a glisten. For actually shooting the shot the article suggest that you get down to eye level or even try to use the macro camera mode. The last thing is that if you food is hot try adding steam by microwaving some water soaked cotton balls to get that steam effect and that's how to take a picture of food
