Are you a food blogger or compulsive sharer of food photos? If you’re a food blogger, you know that your recipes and copy are important.. but that your photos might be the most important thing of all! Since unfortunately Tast-E-Vision hasn’t been perfected just yet, readers must rely on their eyes to decide whether something l0oks scrumptious enough to spend their time, money, and tastebuds on. It took me a while to give in to this fact, but over the last few months of really spending time working on my photography, my pictures have improved exponentially. See?
However.. when I was studying food photography, I never found much useful information on the web regarding setup and settings!I read an awesome book by Nicole S. Young called Food Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots and learned so much.
That’s why I started WeAreFoodBloggers.com – a place to share what I learn and my process with other bloggers, as well as writing, promotion, and monetization tips. We have some other awesome bloggers writing, too! If you’re a food blogger, I’d love for you to share your experience on the community site – just contact me if you’re interested in writing.
If you love to share your food photos with your social media crew, you’ll be interested in this series, too! I show my setup for one of my favorite photo shoots I’ve done, as well as all editing that I did in post. I use an entry-level DSLR (a Canon Rebel T3 with the kit lens in this shoot), but a point-and-shoot (even a smartphone camera!) would follow the same principles. Be sure to check it out – there’s not much like this out there on the web just yet!
