Food Photography, Day 19

Day 19: Food Styling and adding garnish to balance the look of the dish and food.



This was done by studying professional photographs on Pinterest’s website. I don’t like Pinterest because people ‘pin’ your photos to their boards, seemingly without your permission. This just rubs me wrong. Nevertheless, I looked through the photos, and noticed a great many that were quite average to below average, and a handful that were quite good. I searched for photographs with/of tomatoes, since I’m up to my armpits in home-grown toms now.  Here’s my effort. I took two shots of some tomatoes, basil and mozzarella balls.

    Wow. Intense. Now I’ve got to hit the farmers’ market this afternoon.

    Odd: I was happy with the one that shows on Facebook, then followed here and saw the full-on shot. Seeing the two makes me wonder what the one between looks like. One with just a little shadow.

    These pictures are beautiful, so much rich colour.

  3. Amazing how just the right lighting and shadow can make something seem so much more appealing and rich in color. 🙂
