The Food Photography Topic

You're much too kind, Diana.  Lots of great advice on this thread.  I think there is possibly an older thread, but it's been a while.  I'll have to go look.


A simplification:  most good food photography consists of great light, good aesthetic sense and attention to detail (i.e., Simon_liver's point about "dirty plates" upthread).  Equipment may play a role in enhancing a photo; that being said, a crappy photo will be apparent regardless of whether you used a camera that cost thousands of dollars or a cheap cell phone.  Don't worry about the tool you're using.  It took me a while to have that epiphany.


PS.  If you look back on the blog far enough, you can see how my photography evolved over time.  It was pretty crappy when I first started.
