Traditional or contemporary – these stunning compositions surely are eye-catchers anywhere you put them.
Whether you use photoshop or arrange the food items yourself, this food photography trend is a must. Try them on banners, stories, etc.
Your products on a beautifully arranged table never gets old. Lately we have seen this trend looking more like the typical ‘waiting for your friend to take a picture of the food’ type of styling – definitely a more natural look.
Hand in shots
A classic that’s not talked about enough, making its comeback to your social media feed.
Try color blocking as your background. If done right, you direct your viewer directly to your food instead of creating a distraction.
Applicable for all products you can think of, and very popular for the gram.
Nothing more pleasing to the eye and soul than a monochromatic composition that enhances your food.
Less is more, they say. Minimal compositions can surely say a thousand words, and work amazing with fruits – but also with tiny entrées or dishes like dumplings, churros, etc.
Mouthwatering close ups
Not a better food tease than a high-quality close up of your decadent food. You’ll have people craving what you offer.
Instead of an isometric pattern, opt for something more messy looking – yet nice to the eye. Play around with ingredients and shapes.
You can’t never go wrong with a creative approach to your food photographs. But remember, always keep your brand’s photography guidelines in mind.
