Great food photography means more than just snapping what’s on your dinner plate. Just like any other photography genre, there are certain rules that you need to follow to make the most of the stunning colors, textures and shapes. Impressively shared by Food Photographer Joanie Simon, heres the five tips of Stunning Food Photograph using an iphone.
The very first tip is SuperDuper easy. Make sure that you have a clean lens to work with. iPhone has it lens right on the back but then what normally happens over the day is, somehow you end ups getting your iphone thrown on counters, on your purse or even your kids’ hands. So if you’ve ever taken a picture of your food and then you wondering why is that so fuzzy or a little bit glowy, that because you haven’t clean up the lens properly.
Move on to the the next tip, turn off the flash once you open up the camera app. Because if you use the on-camera flash from your phone it’s going to wash out your whole scene. You’re going to lose any sort of depth or dimension that make it look super flat. Right after you turn off the flash, find some sort of good quality light source that helps to make your picture look good. Take a note that Light is either makes or breaks a photo! it doesn’t matter what camera you’re using, it’s all about the lighting.
Tip number three, is to watch out for some of the fancy modes that your camera can do. Here on iPhone you’ve probably heard about the ability to do in portrait mode which more or less. It’s emulating the sense of aperture that you’ve got a narrow depth of field versus a wide depth of field. Because that narrow depth of field, brings attention to your subject.
Tip number four is that you don’t have to shoot inside of the native camera app that comes with the iphone. You can shoot inside of other apps which come with some additional bells, and whistles, like the way you probably ever shoot in vseo or vsco cam. Mobile app version of Adobe Lightroom cc could be a great option.
Tip number five, the angle of approach as written by bone Appetit magazine when it comes to taking pictures of food, a very flattering and very popular angle for online is either gonna be the overhead, or the straight on. So dont hesitate to play around and get creative with both of style. Last but always satisfying tip to try is to take the shot by flip your iphone upside down and getting that head-on angle that feels monumental.
