Make your food look irresistible online

Food photography is a bit of an art. With a few simple tips you can take photos that look as good as the food tastes. Great photos are not only shareable on social media, but will inspire people to seek out the real thing to try themselves.

In this video, you’ll learn how to:

  1. Use natural light, like a window, as your light source.

  2. Adjust your angles for a POV that is angled top down and flat lay for the best presentation.

  3. Minimize clutter to give your food the spotlight it deserves!

  4. Include a human element like two hands reaching for a dish or a hand cupping a glass.

  5. Use your phone. If you have an iPhone 7 or higher, it’s likely that you have a perfect piece of photo equipment right in your pocket.

  6. Use stock photos. If you don’t have time or resources to shoot at all, use a free stock photography resource like Burst
