I’ve been reading a few articles about food photography basics and I’m committing myself to trying three new things.

1. Use a wide aperture – this will blur the background and can help diminish anything unwanted and distracting.

2. Have a wide variety of serving ware to choose from – there is a rule that you should never place a same colored food on the same colored plate. Thrift stores and garage sales are always great places to start when expanding your kitchen collection.

3. Background – purchasing solid or simple patterned scrapbooking paper is an easy and cheap way for a variety of readily available backgrounds.

Now that I’ve shared, are there any food (or non-food) photography techniques that you want to try? Or are you a pro and have everything all figured out? Share your thought below.
