WHAT ARE COMMON COMMON FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY ISSUES?
Frustrated by how your food photos are turning out? Assess your current photos by reviewing these common "DIY product photo issues" and read on for potential solutions:
Your photos are blurry. Blurry photos are caused by camera shake. Solutions include: 1) hold your camera steadier (easier said than done), 2) use a tripod with a remote so your camera stays completely still while you're shooting, 3) use a faster shutter speed, which will require opening up your aperture and/or moving to an area with more light, or 4) raise your ISO to decrease the amount of light needed (this will reduce image quality, however).
Your colors aren't true to life. When you're editing your photos, if your plate of food looks very blue, yellow, pink or green, use your software's white balance tools to fix it! Colors come alive when the white balance is set properly. If you shoot in RAW format, you'll have an easier time adjusting color balance later.
Your photos just don't "pop" like professional food photos. Experienced food photographers use lenses that allow them to narrow their depth of field to highlight the subject of the photo. Then they use photography software to tweak the contrast, levels and sharpness of their photos. Sometimes a few little edits can really make a photo pop.
