Rules for Food Bloggers’ Photography

Even from a mile away, you can tell that they’re food bloggers. When they enter a restaurant, you see them toting a chunky camera and snapping away at the plate in front of them. Nowadays, food bloggers abound, because restaurants are seeing the important role these bloggers play in promoting their place. If you happen to be one of those food bloggers, do remember that there are certain rules to live by, when taking photos in a restaurant:

If you’re going out with a group, do be aware that some of them may not be too keen on the idea of you taking pictures of each dish even before they get a bite of the food. What could be more fun is to get them involved in the process. Ask them if they’re willing to pose for the camera as they slice that juicy steak, for instance.

Be as unobtrusive as possible. In some restaurants, endlessly snapping photos is frowned upon. Get a feel of the place first before pressing down on the shutter. Be wary of that flash too, as you don’t want to annoy other people who are happily enjoying their meal.

Other than the food, try taking shots of the overall ambiance of the restaurant. This will give more depth to your pictures.

More than thinking about your blog, just enjoy the meal and company. That makes for a better experience, after all.

Tips in choosing the best photo subject

A photographer has his favorite photo subject, much like a poet has his muse or a painter has his inspiration before tackling his canvass. This subject particular inspires the photographer in you and encourages you to take as many photos as you can possibly take. Some would go for scenic images in nature like the beach, or mountain, or a wide open field. Others would prefer to take photographs of faces and profiles, or men in Epiphone PRO-1 PLUS Acoustic Guitar , some others would choose animals, like pet dogs and cats to the bigger ones like tigers and lions, perhaps. It does not really matter which one you choose, but always go for which one you love best. That way, you will feel you are not only working while taking photographs, but will enjoy immensely while immersed in the process.
