Food Styling – Campaign Photography with Sears Grilling #GrillingisHappiness #SoFabU

This week’s class theme was food styling and photography.  Our lesson was intense, and long, but extremely useful.

There is just entirely too much information to share here in one blog post, so I’ll fill you in on a few basics.

Styling your food is important.

Lighting is important.

Background is important.

Props are important.

Restaurants know this, and folks who make commercials know this, and folks who put pictures of food in publications know this.

I know this too, but it’s hard.  Plus, it takes a lot of planning.  Time I didn’t have this week.

Nonetheless, I learned a great deal and I can’t wait to continue playing around with my plating.

I realize I have quite a ways to go, but I am still happy with my progress.  While I did try to get properly styled food, I was still trying to focus on getting a good quality picture.

I promised myself I wouldn’t point out all the flaws in my blog post, so I’m just going to put my photos below.
