Food photography: it’s harder than it looks

Scrolling through my posts recently, I realised how gross my photos made my food look. My Samsung Galaxy A3, terrible eye and woeful photography knowledge all played a part but, whatever the cause, I convinced myself that if I really want to take this blog to the next level (wherever that is), I needed to get a decent camera. So, I got one: a Nikon D3300. 

All the blogs told me to! And from the looks of their mouthwatering pictures, they were right. Of course, I’m now obsessed with my shiny new toy and can barely eat a mouthful without taking it out to try and make the food in front of me look as delicious as possible as it slowly goes cold.

They need a lot of work, but for the first time, I actually know what I’m doing wrong!

Depth of focus and the lighting: room for improvement

The blogs aren’t wrong when they said to always use natural light!

Getting there…

More eye-watering than mouthwatering

Soz, couldn’t wait to eat the food before taking the photo for this one

This next one is by far my favourite. I’d actually eat those tomatoes.

Err, please ignore the black bits

Now, I know a bad workman blames his tools, but can a mediocre one thank them??
