Photography Tips

e.g. small plate, focus on the food e.g. with close-ups showing texture, think about the mood of the photograph,


get a reflector

creating your own crack effect boards

place items right next to window

Idea for how to present food


One of my photographs. I read that putting food on a small plate is better though colour of plate doesn’t match background

Also background here too red, the images I’ve been looking at used a lot of grey or weathered wood, evening light makes a difference need to photograph in fronton window daytime


My photograph. Well lit, close-up better and white plate less distracting


My photograph. Here evening light works well because it suits the wooden utensil and mushrooms in risotto, makes it look more homely


I experimented a lot with phones and backgrounds including trying the floor


The brown wood looks good for the phone to be put on but i realised i could edit the colour like i have done and use my own photograph for the background of my app I actually like it more than the image i had found because it is softer and warmer

The icons i made


I decided to crop out the centre of the phone so that I could place my app images in it and look like it is on the phone


I also added these circles because I realised it was very confusing what was happening when you watch the first video i made without any description or anything showing where it is being clicked
