1. Shoot close up and shoot in the natural light. I always try and photograph near a window to make sure I have as much natural light as possible. I also like to play with angles and capture "bites" as well as the entire meal.
3.Think Clean. I always use a plain white plate or natural wood surface to present my food. And I take the time to wipe off any drips of sauce from the rim and not pile the food too high or make the portions too large.
4. Create color. I always want it to look bright. Yellow lemons, nice green accents of cilantro or mint....all of it feels fresh and by association, delicious.
My models for today were the southwest meatballs from last nights dinner (from Clean Eating magazine) and they were yummy! But here are a few other food shots in-case meatballs don't do it for you.
Now all of this food talk has me hungry. I might need a midnight snack. What is your favorite thing to eat for snack?
