Food Photography has a power of exciting people about food. A good food photograph can make you hungry and arouse your temptation. I believe, this is why there are very few Food Photographers. Food photography leaves a lasting impact, but there is more to a great food photograph than just photography – Food styling. Food photograph is only as good as its food styling. Most famous Food Photographers either have food styling skills or hire a Food Stylist.
If you are hobbyist like me, hiring a food stylist is very expensive. So why not develop food styling skills and at the same time improve your food photos?
That’s where this blog comes in. When I was researching and was trying to find some resources on food photography and food styling, I quickly realized that there are not many resources on the web that help aspiring Foodographers and Stylists. While I was noting the tips and techniques that I use and experiment with, I thought it would be of great use to those who are interested and can’t find anything on the web.
Next few months will be very exciting. Imagine being able to take a good photograph every time. Imagine people being tempted to eat the food from your food photograph and the smile on their faces and the excitement in their eyes, every time they see one of your photographs.

All this and more coming up in the next few months…
