Aside from some heavy dose of Ferdz’ and Oggie’s happyfoodies, I frequent to food blogs and read techniques and tips on food photography. It’s fun learning new things everyday. One crucial thing that stuck inside my head is the importance of lighting to maintain the texture and color of the food. A low light height usually enhances the texture in the food.
I would like to one day do a whole set-up (complete with all the light, mirror and white board, etc.) and try experimenting on different angles and arrangements but for now, I need to learn and read more.
This is my run-of-the-mill attempt at food photography. I hope Ferdz, Oggie, Pao and the others could spare me a few tips. :-)

A good food photo will fool you for the real thing so much so that immediately, all you wanted was to put it in your mouth.
