Shoot quickly, especially when dealing with heat.


Shoot often, and capture the mess. Cooking is messy!


Embrace natural, ambient light to show off fresh ingredients.


Use macro settings to capture stunning close ups.


Use neutral backgrounds to bring out textures in the food.


Set the scene to tell a story and don’t be afraid to get your hands involved.


Take action shots using slow shutter speeds to portray energy.


Use colourful ingredients and off-white plates to serve up.


Find an interesting angle, even if it means shooting from a height or leaning inside a cooking pot.


Adopt the point of view of the creator. The same applies before eating!

It missed 'shooting inside a large grill will melt the glue that holds the rubber pad in your expensive tripod' (you have to use a tripod or the heat will melt your face/hands) Smile
