Lighting is one of the fundamental conditions of perfect photography. No matter if you are capturing photos of your unique dishes with your phone or with a DSLR, the most important thing is to understand how to use light.

If you use direct light, which comes through the window on any cloudless day, you can create high contrast along with sharp shadows. On the other hand, natural light reaches a diffused version in a darkened environment. Then you have to apply some creative photography style to represent the soft tone and low-contrast-based photos in an attractive manner. With diffused natural light, you will get no shadows.

Artificial light

As a food blogger, while taking shots of mouth-watering dishes, ensure you have arranged a dark space with a single light source. This artificial lighting concept empowers your photography skills with complete control of lighting angles, colour tones, etc.

Besides, it would  be better to use a white background while capturing food shots in artificial light. This concept helps a lot in evaluating the white balance adjustment mode on the camera. These tricks make your job easy while you go for food photography in artificial light.

From delicate glassware to table linens, vintage tea cups, minimalist white bowls and glossy plates, the possibilities are endless when it comes to food styling with the correct props. Props can be anything that can tell a story, create layers, texture, and provide visual interest in your image.  These help to create a feast for the eyes–making food look picturesque as well as tempting.

Perfect angle
