Food photography is something dreadful to accomplish. Yet, it’s necessary to understand, grow, and expand. Allowing the chance of looking somewhat professional in a field sought after by many aspiring photographers.


Last week, I was assigned to take a shot of food for a class assignment. I went out and bought a small table, toothpicks, and foam pieces. It didn’t take much, though it is a definite improvement from where I began a few years ago.

Some other shots from in my class were much more straightforward but required much thought and effort to edit, in-post and on-shoot.

Overall, this assignment was fun to wrap my head around. Going forward, I hope to continue dabbling with food photography a little bit more, especially as I continue to receive more professional equipment.
