Today is Sunday, and for me that means it’s all about food. Big family dinners, good looking food and great atmosphere.  So what if I wanted to take some images from these amazing dinners that I so often partake in on Sundays?

I don’t want my food images to turn out like crap, so what can I do to get the most out of my food photography? Checkout the two videos below, both of which contain some great tips from Chis Ryan, a professional photographer from Portland, Oregon.

So just to go over it again. Here are your food photography basics:

  • Window Light, bounced back with a reflector
  • Find a focus point for the food
  • Shallow but not too shallow depth of field



Keep those tips in mind and your food photography will be much better than the standard “look what I’m eating” post on your various social networks.
