Food Shooting

I recently started shooting food. Not just shooting food, but shooting food for people that actually gave a shit about how the photos turned out. With the pressure on, I called my friend, the amazing food and "stuff" photographer Levi Brown to find out how the hell to make food look edible. He gave me some sage advice. It was something too simple to think of myself, though I employ the exact same technique for everything else I photograph whenever possible. He told me to find a window and put the food near it. That's it. The big secret is out. Obviously, food photography is a lot more nuanced than that. But, I've found, window light is the best ever. As usual, Levi was right. I hope he's proud of my fledgling food photography.
