How to Take Food Pics in Restaurants - Photography Tutorial

We’ve all been there. Sitting in a dark, corner table of a fantastic restaurant, wishing that we had more light, so we didn’t have to use that terrible built-in flash. Perhaps the meal was one of the best we’ve ever eaten and the one thing that would have made it better is gorgeous photos to post to our website, Facebook page, or blog.

When we get home the results are less than spectacular. Usually, the flash creates hot-spots on anything reflective on the table. Including, stemware, cutlery and crockery. The grain from the high ISO used also is a very annoying factor in low-light, restaurant photography. There are some easy solutions to this.

The Art of Using Backgrounds to Create Moody Photos - Photography Tutorial

Sometimes when you’re taking a photo, you can be concentrating so much on your subject that you forget about the background. But have you ever really considered just how important getting a good background is to making great photos?

What is a background for? The background enhances the subject by setting the scene, creating atmosphere or providing environmental information. A poor background distracts from your subject and will ruin the photo.

A good background does the opposite. It works with the subject to make a great photo. If you do it well, the background can help add mood and atmosphere to the photo. It can help you capture the feeling or impression that you have of a place. Backgrounds help you be a more creative and expressive photographer by adding visual elements that enhance the subject.
