Good food deserves good visual representation. That's how food photography was born, and ever since then it has become an important genre in the food and advertising industries. The idea behind food photography is to make a plate as attractive as possible using food styling, light and composition. Color and perspective are also very important and with each type of food, there is a different approach. There are also tricks you can use to make the dish even more attractive. Steam and water sprinkles are just the basics, but a pro food stylist will have you watering your mouth before you click the shutter. Overall, food photography is a really cool genre and it successfully combines two beautiful arts. Share your delicious food photos with us and check out the work of fellow photographers.
