One of the most important things you need to take photos are materials. Without materials, you won't have a photo. Some materials you will need is some type of light source. You could either use a LED light panel, a window that would let in natural light, or a shop light. More materials are a tripod, a camera, manual lighting adjustments such as F stop, shutter speed, ISO, manual focus, and white balance. Also a SD card inserted in the camera. The last thing, of course, is food for the food photography photo.
Step 2: Studio Setup
Manual settings on camera allows you to control how much light is going into the camera by adjusting ISO, shutter speed, and aperture -Stationary lights Have lights on some type of stationary object such as a stand or table Have lights coming from sides or behind -Use the tripod
Setting up the scene is another import part of the photo. You should have manual setting on camera. It allows you to control how much light is going into the camera by adjusting ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Stationary lights are crucial. Have your lights on some type of stationary object such as a stand or a table. Have lights coming from sides or behind. Also use a tripod to keep the camera stationary so the picture isn't blurry.
Step 3: Perspective of Shot
There are ton of different angles you could shoot your shot from. There are many examples such as shooting from above like birds eye view, camera is slightly above the food, camera is at level with the food, upshot view, camera diagonal to the food, everything depends on your subjects shape, personality, colors, textures, and size. Also you can zoom your lense closer to the subject.
