How is it still right to photograph food?

You can try yourself in food photography or improve existing skills thanks to the advice of Ori Geva, a professional food stylist from Tel Aviv with 11 years of experience. Among her clients are well-known international and Israeli brands. Here are its main recommendations.

1. When shooting on a smartphone, always use natural light. If the light is not very good, you can use the flash from a friend’s phone. It will add an interesting effect to your shot.

2. Try using a photo to tell a story. Add details that would look good next to the main object, select the appropriate background. Pass the mood!

3. Find your own style so that people can distinguish your work from many others. For starters, be inspired by the work of professionals. Subscribe to the accounts of famous food bloggers, they are the trendsetters in this industry.

4.Always use only the freshest ingredients with a pronounced texture. Cucumber pimples, carrots slightly stained in the ground can attract the attention of viewers better than ideal vegetables and fruits.

5. Be prepared, but at the same time know how to improvise. Accessories for shooting - napkins, boards, appliances, plates - it is best to buy on city markets. Grandma's service or mother's favorite tablecloth is also a great option, because old things can tell a story.
