Photography or styling is a completely creative skill, and although there is science behind the technical skills in using a camera, for the most part it is an art and personal expression. As you practice it, you will find your own style and voice. Understand the food before you set it up and start the photography.
Most people first make the food, shoot it then write about it. I have a confession here, I do it the other way round. I first find a topic I want to share with you guys, then somehow the food creates itself and finally I style and shoot it in a manner that suits the entire story. Kind of obvious, since I always share hopefully not bug you with dinner stories along with the food. I think of the food I am making. Is it something that has been in my family or is it a new world cuisine that I am taking up to challenge my own taste buds?
Do I want the image to portray warmth or shall I make it fresh? These typical thoughts ascertain the most important bit of the styling.

I have said this before, and I will say it again, You are here to photography FOOD…not that pretty plate or old spoon. Yes, they are really really pretty, but unless you are running a lifestyle blog,at the end of the day people want to see the food, pretty spoon or not.
FOCUS on the food. That being said, I do use props. It is essential to the story telling process of food styling. Just make sure that the actual food speaks the most to the audience, and they come back for the food, not just the props.
Choose a DOF that suits the picture. A photograph with a shallow depth of field has a small part of the subject in focus and the background out of focus.
This creates a lovely mood and can work really well with food photography. Medium depth of field has more of the subject in focus. A deep depth of field has everything in focus. Think about the food you are shooting and what sort of depth would suit it. My advise is to mix it up. Like this image here… I could have styled it better. Obviously use any of the props from my sizeable collection. I loved this recipe and wanted viewers to simple love it for what it is. No external garnish needed to bring the story home.

Play with it till you understand the settings that work for different lights and then it will come naturally. I have heard so many good bloggers say they spend so much time in shooting and styling a pic that cooking seems easy!
For me, its the exact opposite. But styling and shooting it is the easy and quick bit for me. I rarely spend more than ten minutes on each shoot. And I never over think things.
