The food on your plate looks absolutely scrumptious. But somehow, when you take a picture of it, the result is less than appetizing. Great food photography isn’t just about taking a shot of a delicious dish, it’s about carefully selecting and styling your food, appropriately using natural light or studio light, and editing your images to leave viewers hungry. 

In this talk, Donna will discuss and cover all the aspects of food photography, including the following:

• Props and Backgrounds
• Composition and Styling Tips
• Camera Angles
• Gear and Lenses
• Aperture Settings
• Basic lighting Tips
• Behind the Scenes
• Why Editing is Essential
