This month I have done a collection of color and b&w. Colors of fall, be it the vibrant leaves or the painted skies….fall is the most scenic season of all. It last for a very short time but it is  spectacular. The B&W images are from a Facebook challenge, we had to post five black and white images for five days. So, shared it on 365 as well. 

I often get asked about sources to learn food photography, photography is a two fold learning process.


Visual learning, where you 'study' images that inspire you. Just looking at them will do little or nothing, you need to ask some questions. 



1- why does this image catch my attention,  what do I like in it, what emotions does it evoke.

2- what's the light source, read the shadows

3-what's the color pallet, how does the prop support the colors and mood

4- read the angle, ponder why it was picked

5- study the frame


Once you form a habit of looking at the image and asking some basic questions, you will start doing this subconsciously.


How does studying an image help you ? You will know why an image is appealing, how the angle, frame and colors add to the final story. Try it.


How do you find  food images, go to Pinterest and explore. I have created a lot of boards on Pinterest to help me learn. You guys are free to repin. I spend a lot of time on Pinterest and have learnt a lot there, 
Reading/studying : Reading about photography, understanding the technical aspect. Understand all the settings of your camera, don't be afraid to use manual setting. Read the manual. Read about photography in general, these are a few sites that taught me a lot. Since am not as smart as a lot of you, I need to write things down, so I have a diary where I write down everything I learn about photography



Learn food photography - Neel : one of the best resources online for food photography. There is soo much to learn there, Neel has done a lot of work and trust me it’s a huge database of knowledge. Do not forget to subscribe to his podcast. Neel has helped me a lot to learn, I owe a lot to him.

Fstoppers : tons of tutorials

MDR photography classes : How to take photographs in a restaurant 

Dessert for Breakfast : How to shoot a cake

Great book to haven your book shelf : HELENE DUJARDIN - PLATE TO PIXEL


I also subscribe to lots of  food photography magazines. Donna Hay being my favorite. Photography weekly is a good magazine to keep you unto date. 

If you ask me that is a lot of resources, a lot of reading and join creative live, lots of classes for free. The ones that I recommend to buy, I have them and often go back to it.  


I do have other classes from Andrew on Craftsy. So That is another place to check out. Always great stuff on sale. 

The most important of them all, your camera manual. That’s your photography Bible. So these were some study material, some are free and some at a reasonable price. I hope this helps.
