Food Photography: Seize The Moment | On that day I re-learned that just as in life, in photography we too must seize the moment. The big bright star in the sky is constantly shifting, and those shifts result in different shooting conditions, of course. If we rely on the sun to provide the light in which we shoot our photos we must always be aware of how it falls on our shooting areas, and how different times of the day will affect lighting conditions. | From: SpicieFoodie.com
This is true of nearly all photography, and especially so in food photography. If you’re planning to shoot your meal (not just style it for the dinner table), shoot it in natural light or as near as possible to a window. This always gives it a glowy, irresistible look and prevents the ugly yellow cast you get from light bulbs.
