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.
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
3. Close up
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.
Turn you camera so the subject starts in one corner and ends in the opposite corner, breaking the space diagonally.
5. Lost in Space
This angle can be created in a light box or when the food is without any shadows around.
6. Horizontal & Vertical
These are very common angles and are self-explanatory
Images slightly tilted to the left or right
