It’s summertime, so naturally, barbecues and family gatherings are on the roster for many of us. Summer is a time for rest and relaxation, good weather, and dining al fresco. There is a good chance you’ll want to document your picnics, barbecues, and the food and beverages you’ll be serving. We all love to do that, especially in recent years. If you want your food photos to stand out while keeping your workflow simple, here are a few tips that may help you.

Working with Available Light

Direct sunlight can be harsh as a single source for food photography. If you are indoors, photographing food on a sunny day, your best bet would be to use the sunlight coming through a window. Try placing the food to the side of or in front of the window. Avoid shooting with the window behind you―your shadow will fall on the main subject.

If the light is too harsh, there are some modifications you can make to enhance your lighting:

  • Place a sheer white curtain or diffusion material over the window to temper the strong sunlight. Alternatively, you can also use wax or parchment paper and place it over the window to cut down the intensity of the light. Gaffer tape will keep these in place and leaves no adhesive residue.
