Angles For Food Photography

Every individual has different angles to his personality and I think that’s what makes him interesting.

The same rule follows for food too. To make your food look interesting,  photograph it from different angles. Give it a perspective and Story.

Just like any other type of Photography, Camera Angles are very much important for photographing food. In this article we will discuss about various angles of photographing food which will make it look appealing and interesting.

Angles of Food Photography

1. From The Top

I personally love this angle as it gets a very clear picture of food, styling, etc. I generally stand on a stool and position my camera and focus directly above the food.

2. Rule of Thirds

The main reason for observing the rule of thirds is to discourage placement of the subject at the center. Try to keep the food a bit on the extreme left or right and experiment

If you want to get all the minute details of your subject this is a good angle. Make sure that you have a macro lens. It can give amazing images.
