Food Photography, there are two styles; polished & authentic. The polished style looks neat and clean, like how it will be served by a french waiter in a black vest and bow tie in a four-star restaurant. The authentic style looks and feels like it comes from your grandmother kitchen, it makes you smell of your grandmother’s yummy scrumptious mouth watering cooking. It’s not just visually pleasing but you can almost taste it too. This style requires more time, work and skill, such as knowledge in creating a natural looking kitchen window lighting, and knowledge of food styling to carefully design every bit of crumb and drop of sauce in the photo looking natural.
Food Photography and food styling is an art form, when choosing a food photographer don’t think photographer who has bright lighting food photos in the portfolio is good, because bright and even lighting is easy, but creating natural looking lighting with controlled shadows and authentic food styling are much harder and require higher skill to achieve.
