10 Tips for Gorgeous Food Photos Slideshow

Slide 1 of 10
5. Experiment with Props

A lot of the nicest food photos I’ve seen include strategically placed slices of baguettes, a pretty cup of tea, or a nicely folded linen napkin. The little things that you may not notice right away make a big difference in the overall effect of a photo. Just make sure that the props make sense for the theme and context of what you’re shooting — you don’t want a glass of wine in the background of a breakfast dish. Try envisioning the shot before you take the photo, so you’ll know what you want in there.
