Take pictures from a nice angle
A lot of food photographers prefer taking pictures from a downward angle. This could be due to the fact that the height of the table is generally lower, compared to the level of the eye. You can however take pictures from a different unique angle, to actually give your audience a different angle pictures. This will make your pictures unique and more people will look forward to seeing your picture. This is because you will give them the opportunity to see things from outside of the norm.
Show inside pictures
Another way to snap unique pictures is to show the inside of food. A lot of photographers are just content with snapping what the food looks like on the outside. In this case, you could cut out a part of the food, to help the audience see how the inside of the food look like. They will be able to appreciate the inner texture and depth of the food you are snapping, as opposed to just seeing the outside, which they are already used to seeing from other photographs or even from the transparent show glass whenever they want to buy one.
Snap your pictures from a closer dimension
You should also try to take pictures from a very close view. This will help the audience to be able to see the food as close as possible. Furthermore, it would remove all the other distractions from the picture and help them concentrate on exactly what part of the food you want them to see. If part of the background must show, use plain backgrounds, so that they are not distracting the audience from what they should see.
Attend a culinary institute
Attending a culinary institute and being certified is also important for a food photographer. Food photography is among the courses and subjects offered by many culinary institute in India and enrolling for these courses will go a long way in helping you become a great food photographer.
