Brown is the color that almost all photographers are scared of, at least at the beginning of their journey info food photography. When it comes to food, lots of ingredients and dishes have brown hues, so it’s a good practice to start understanding how to photograph brown food and how make it how to make it more appealing through appropriate edits.
I’ve actually never been scared of brown, for me it was the color of delicious foods such as chocolate brownies or Bolognese sauce, but after years of practice I’ve learned to master brown food and how to take drool-worthy images that see it as protagonist.
One of the things that I love most in brown food is texture, whether it’s a smooth, shiny chocolate bar or a textured coffee granita: after all, food photography wouldn’t be as we know it without textures! The right lighting can definetly make or break a photo, as well as composition and post-processing. This is why you should always rely on a professional photographer to capture your products or recipes and take care of your brand images.
As a food photographer, my job is to make any food look appealing and I believe that even the least photogenic food deserves to be captured. I love good challenges, so if you’re looking for a food photographer to capture a hard-to-shoot food, I’m here to help!
