How To Take Food Photography
When seated at a lovely restaurant, we hope to see a photo of the food is all around. Unfortunately not found. Finally when I got home a friend brought me the pictures of food in the photo at a restaurant.
Low light and use the built-in flash to be obstacles that are often encountered. Typically,flash hot–spots created anything reflective on the table. Including, stemware, cutlery and crockery. Grain from high ISO used is also a very disturbing factor in low light, photography restaurant. There are several easy solutions to this
How To Capture Great Photos In Any Setting :
1. The fastest and easiest way to get great photos is to shoot with the available, direct sunlight. It can choose a table outside, under umbrellas, where sunlight will be distributed by an umbrella. This method is by far the best to achieve a very good photo.
2. None are available at outdoor tables, or too cold, rain, etc. There are other methods.One trick is to ask the desk if you can have a table by the window when booking. If they say no, instead of asking when the next available seat is when the window is available. Do not be embarrassed to drive it and insisted. They are there to serve you.
3. Outdoor tables and window only works during the day, but what about eating at night,when the sun was down and nothing but the light available in the restaurant? This is where it will be difficult. What can be done is to use fast lenses to capture light. One thathas a large aperture, (the amount of light allowed to reflect the size of aperture), f1.8 or f2.8 lets in plenty of light and called a big hole, or a fast lens. Despite their small numbers. Something smaller (f4.0 and above) and you‘ll have trouble. Unless you have IS (image stabilization) on your lens.
4. I have found that having a preview image on my camera works very well for photography restaurant. This is a built-in to almost all the cameras point-and–shot, but still very limitedin DSLR. The reason I find it very helpful because I do not have to hold the camera up to my face to shoot. This can be very annoying when taking pictures in a nice restaurant in particular. With the preview pictures, you see the LCD screen on the back of the camera and focus your photos without having to carry a camera on top of your food.
5. When taking pictures of food you want to always try to shoot at an angle of 10-40degrees from the table. That is, do not take pictures of food at eye level. We humans always see our food at eye level and it is more interesting when we look at the actualfood. About 10 degrees above the plate is perfect.
6. I see too many bloggers food street shooting with wide-angle lens and as a result the photographs are not interesting. There’s too much happening in the foreground and background, when really, all we want to see is food. So unless you want to highlight some specific areas of the table, or a restaurant, approached.
7. Built-in flash tends to flatten the image and make it dull. Try to use one of the above methods first and if all else fails, flip a flash, but only in an emergency.
And finally, do not discount your photo editing software. Images will look bland and flat.
