Ingredients You'll Need

A camera
Great food!


Tip 1: Use a menu to block shadows

Tip 2: Want brighter pics? Try lunch instead of dinner for better natural light.

Tip 3: Tell a story. Hands, a napkin, a glass in the shot can make a big difference. Don't be afraid to take a photo after you take a bite.

Tip 4: Add yourself. Food is pretty on a plate, but it's best served with fun. Snap a photo with you while enjoyng the meal.
