Food styling and props for a photo shoot

Usually I don't like to 'over-style' or use too many props. Like for ingredients often less is best (unless you are making lasagne!) and when I can I want to ingredients to be 'the props', especially when they are beautiful fruit and veggies! Where did these 'ingredients/props' end up? I will let you know tomorrow! For now I just wanted to show you the pictures I took (very quickly) with my iPhone, I hope that my photographer Sean will think that I am getting better!

  2. I think both these photos have color and clarity worthy of a cookbook. Your photograpgher dare not like them :-). Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  5. Perfect - and great props to showcase the fruit and veg too

  6. “Usually I don't like to 'over-style' or use too many props.” – That’s right! When it comes to food styling and photography, less is more. Too many props can make the photo look cluttered. I personally think that the beauty of the picture depends on the arrangement and colours of the elements used. For your photo, orange creates a great pop of colour. Thanks for sharing!
