Exciting news! Today we are releasing a new course in the Food Photography module that includes 12 lessons on composition. It’s called Composition for Food Photography.
Why composition? What’s the big deal?
Does anyone really care about the arrangement of props and food items in a photo?
When I first started taking pictures of my food for Pinch of Yum, the concept of composition was such a mystery to me.
I thought that the arrangement of food and props in food photography was a completely artistic process that was only for the super creative food photographers of the world. I didn’t think that it was possible for me (a self-perceived non-artsy person) to learn composition in simple steps, like a skill.
Maybe even more importantly, I didn’t understand that this one simple thing – composition, or the arrangement and layout of my photograph – was an element of photography that could make my food photos go from blah to eye-poppingly yummy.
