Food Photography Made Easy by Chef Vosgien

Food Photo by Chef Jean-Louis Vosgien

If you’re a beginning photographer who wants to bite into food photography, here’s a good place to start. Chef Jean-Louis Vosgien of Saint Tropez is graciously sharing his tips on how to shoot culinary photographs.

He says the LCD screen in today’s digital camera is a great tool, making it a lot easier for shooting food than looking through the lens. But for composing the picture, nothing beats tethered shooting, connecting the camera to a computer with a big screen display. This makes composition extremely precise and much easier.

And mind your background, Jean-Louis says; it could be a natural background or whatever you want to appear in the picture. A strong sheet of white or colored paper may help in some situations.

Get near a window for lighting if you don’t have a light box. And shoot steady. Use a tripod to stabilize the camera. If you don’t have a tripod, use that little bag of flour or rice for the camera to sit on. Chef Vosgien has his culinary photos posted here.
