In recent years, more and more people like photography and cooking. With the popularity of Facebook and blogs, recording and uploading have become a daily part of people’s lives. So how can you take an attractive picture? Here are some points to share with you!
Try natural light as much as possible. You can choose to shoot by the window. In dark places, you can choose to increase the ISO or large aperture. Bright light can make food color bright and have a delicious feel. Using a flash will make some places very dark and some places will be pale, so it is not recommended! Even if you want to use the flash, don’t hit the flash directly on the food, you should use “reflective flash” to direct the flash to the wall or ceiling, and use the reflection to project the flash evenly on the food.
Another thing to pay attention to shadow. Sometimes when you bring the camera closer, your own shadow will be captured, so you should carefully adjust the angle before shooting. Trying to shoot backlit will also make the food very bright and warm!
(2) Shooting Angle
All foods have different shapes. Do not shoot all foods from the same angle. Find out the angles of different foods to take good pictures.
Sometimes in addition to photographing the whole food, you can also take close-up photos of the details of the food. Then a macro lens or telephoto lens will come in handy!
(5) Grasping Time
Freshly cooked food is the most attractive to sell. The first ten minutes of cooking is the prime time for shooting. The luster of food will decrease with time. Preparing the layout before shooting can shorten the shooting time.
