Good enough to eat! Food Photography Tips

When it comes to visual appeal, nothing can succeed or fail so much as food photography. We’ve all been there. You’re perusing a menu at a restaurant, drive-thru, or even television. Sure, that food SOUNDS good but the lighting is bad, the colors are flat. Maybe you hope that it tastes better than it looks? I am always baffled that some restaurateurs put so little into their visual presentation, since pictures really do “say a thousand words”.

With some basic knowledge, anyone can make foods more appealing. This is a great resource that I found that will be tucked away for future reference. Maybe you don’t have a restaurant but LOVE to take pics of your food for Facebook or Twitter? Bon Appétit!
