So, you want to take quality food photos, but you don’t have professional gear. Never fear! Creating great food photos doesn’t have to happen in a studio. We say that with absolute certainty because ours happen in a kitchen.
Let’s get down to it.
There are some bare necessities you need in order to make food shots pop. Obviously, you need a camera. Luckily, you don’t need a high-quality DSLR or mirrorless camera to make that happen – smartphones can get the job done just fine! For the record, we shoot on a DSLR, but you don’t need to!
Then, you need a backdrop. A good food photo might look like it’s sitting right on the kitchen table – and sometimes that’s true – but there’s actually a great deal of thought that goes into it. We’re big fans of a large vinyl print for ours.
