Photographing food

Food photography, a tough one I must say. Not only you have to be a good photographer, but you have to be a good cook and a good stylist, that’s if you are trying to do everything at home, like me. I follow food bloggers (food blogging is a big thing here in the UAE) and the ones I love are the ones who have the best photography. Chapeau bas to them, especially those who prepare the food and also take the mouth watering pictures (and write well on top of that!). I’m not a bad cook, but have little patience so I usually end up messing up everything. The below pretty much sums up all the food related photography I have captured lately.

Dragon Fruit. I like how the pulp resembles snow.


Dragon Fruit halves


Marie’s desert (and her red nails)


Olive oil, dark chocolate and rosemary cake. Yes, home made and delicious.

Strawberries. Low light conditions, high ISO.
