Food Photography Tips, Equipment & Resources
The most important part of building your food blog and increasing traffic is taking great pictures. I really can’t stress this enough. Without good pictures it will be difficult to get the initial traffic needed to get your blog off the ground.
Unless you are a professional photographer, this is a skill that needs to be worked on and improved on a daily basis. It’s hard work but with a good foundation, a little guidance and patience you will see your photographs improve drastically.
If you are just starting, chances are that you are taking between 100 and 200 shots of your dish and various stages of preparation. In the end, you are ending up with a couple that are good… which is so frustrating! Believe me, I was there too. Now I take between 20 and 50 shots per recipe, including all the prep work and have to choose between the good ones! It makes the entire process so much more enjoyable. You’ll find everything I did to turn the corner located in this food photography tips, equipment and resources section. It’s not rocket science, but it does take time and patience!
I’m currently adding more resources into this section, so please check back for more Food Photography Tips and Resources. It’s just me working on it, but I’m getting more added in every day! Thanks very much.
