Don’t be a bore with the same angle for every shot! Take into account details and presentation when choosing the best angle for your savory snap. Great presentation is best suited for a top down shot, beautiful ambiance is best shown with a table level shot & details deserve that close up they’ve been waiting for.

When taking any photograph, lighting is one of the most important elements. Ensure that you have enough light to get some detail in your shot. Feel free to flip on that HDR option on your smart phone so you can get more out of low light situations. Whatever you do, stay away from your phone’s flash! It’s sure to ruin the atmosphere of any food shot.
