When it comes to blogging, I am a walking, talking cliche. I say things like ” I absolutely loved it” I do the stare at the ground pose when taking ‘OOTD’ pictures ( Outfit Of the Day for all the non fashion people reading ). However, when it comes to food photography, I am an embarrassment to the blogging clan. More often than not, I start eating my meals before remembering to take the pictures. Sometimes, I am so ravenous that all I want to do is get the meal inside me.
Depending on who you follow on social media, I can guarantee you come across an image of a meal on a daily basis. Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. I can also guarantee that said image leaves your mouth watering so much you are left in a puddle of your own spit. A quick browse on Pinterest sends me straight to the grocery store due to cravings. Food art has become such a big deal recently.
When it comes to food photography, Tom, Dick and even Harry want to show off what they just had. Unfortunately, not all manage capture the image well enough to leave viewers envious. That’s all about to change thanks to happy egg co. and Marte Marie Forsberg. As part of the Taste 100 network, #happyeggtastemakers, are set a task each month. Remember when I showed you how to make Yam and Eggs? This month’s task was to use Marte Marie Forsberg’s tips to create a meal using happy egg co. eggs.
I’ve join the smoothie making gang ( another blogging cliche to add to the list ). My go to smoothie always includes Kale and Spinach. If you haven’t tried it I suggest you do. Don’t under estimate the power of a cup of green juice. I digress. Following my new found love and addiction to Kale and Spinach, I decided my meal of choice would be Sautéed Kale and Spinach on Toast with Egg. Recipe here.
So without further ado, here are her food photography tips. These are the things you need to do to make your food pictures, heck, this can apply to any picture look like it was art directed by the creme de la creme of photography.
