Food Photography Foodstagram Book Latte BnB Charcoal Burger Lar's Buko Batchoy

Today’s generation is so into photography, especially on food and travel. I guess this is because of the innovative technology on cameras and mobile phones. From there, taking photos is everywhere we eat and go. Whether we are good at it or just a rookie, we always give it a snap and a click. This is very observable on travel and food photography.

I know, reading this, you are already enjoying taking photos of food and places. However, let me share three main things that will make your food photography step up higher in content and attention. You can’t just take your camera out and capture whatever you want whenever you want. And then expect everyone will just love it. So here we go!

Foodstagram Tip #1: Tell A Story

If you want to be attractive, relatable and relevant, you don’t just capture a photo. You also capture a story. Our brain genetically loves a good storytelling. For some, it maybe what happened before you got the shot. It can also be a now story in the photo. You don’t have to tell the whole story. You can start by giving a glimpse through your photo. Give a story worth sharing in your food.

Foodstagram Tip #2: Get Into Motion

Capturing a real live action somehow elevates your food photography. I know it’s not easy. But, it’s a trick that photographers and bloggers use. Give some relevant motion in your food shot. You can capture someone who eats, how the food is prepared or how it is delivered. Give your food shots some life through motion.

Foodstagram Tip #3: Amplify Your Uniqueness

Human always has an instinct of curiosity. Even with our food, we tend to create a new twist now and then. If you want to give your food an attention, highlight what is unique and rare in its content, taste or presentation. Make everyone know what you have that other don’t. Just like in marketing, uniqueness always brings more customers. So, it will also be in your food photography.  It is a good way of standing out from the rest!

A Quick Wrap-up

All in all, give content in your food photography. You are posting more than mere photos. Make it relatable and shareable. Take off the lid of mediocrity and attain best shot in your food experiences. There is more to your journey in taking wonderful shots in what you eat.

For most of us, we can just use our mobile phones. Big brands are now investing on camera phones. One of the arising brands is OPPO. OPPO F3 is one best deal for their series of selfie expert camera phone. It’s specs is worth the cost. It comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It is also packed with 13 MP for its primary camera and 16 MP front shooter for selfies. Just to give more of it, it is innovated with a rare combination of sensors – Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope. So take yours now for a better food photography!
