I get entranced when I page through Food and Wine® or Bon Appétit and see all the incredible food photography. They both do such a great job of capturing the texture, color, and mood created by the foods and their environments. I’ve done my fair share of art directing food photography and simply put…it’s not easy. Foods respond negatively to a variety of conditions such as humidity, temperature, and exposure to air in general, and may not always be able to be reworked or reconditioned back to their “fresh-out-of-the-oven” state easily. Recently, Food52® posted an article about food photography that I thought was great. Food52, if you aren’t aware, is another drool-worthy resource for everything food. They provide some nice information about what’s involved in shooting food.
