Food #1

Fried chicken and nuggets
“Clogged Arteries”

I don’t know how it seems easy for some people take and post pictures of their breakfast, lunch, and dinner because I can’t get the hang of photographing food.  It’s difficult for me to get the right angle. This was taken during my (now ex) colleague’s farewell cocktail using the Hipstamatic app (Tejas lens + Robusta film).



  • Choose your angle – where you place the camera will affect the type of story you’re trying to tell.
  • Surround your main subject – when shooting from the front of the food, try to keep a great foreground and background to play with. Surround your main dish with ingredients and props that relate to the dish.
  • Natural is best modified – light is king and poor use of light will ruin your story and immediately turn off your audience.
  • Hold the colour – when placing items into your food images, try selecting neutral tones, something that makes the food really pop against it.

Thank you to for the above tips.
