When words are not enough, good photography speaks volumes.
Whether you’re selling a product, enticing customers into a restaurant or convincing them to try a recipe, good clear food photography is important.
Food photography should inevitably, tell a story. From the visual surroundings, lighting to dishes and props, all aspects of your image should guide you through the narrative.
The image should also develop your identity and the brand you are trying to project.
It doesn’t matter that its food photography, the image should still trigger emotions and it should pull the viewer in. Customers should take one look at the image and say “I want that”.
Food shots need to look natural and believable. Use plenty of light and try to recreate the ambience of the room.
Personally I feel the room where people eat is just as important in the photograph. Customers need to see where they are sitting. If you have a place of rustic beauty, you should make sure the backdrop to the food projects this. Show the rich dark tones, wooden fixtures and the natural texture of the interior.
Action photography can be a great addition, either on the restaurant floor or showing food preparation. It gives the customer an assurance of quality.
At the end of the day Investing in great professional photography for your food business is crucial.
Whether it’s a new product launch or an exclusive menu, creating the best possible professional images is the only way to entice hungry customers.
The expertise of professional photographers is second to none when it comes to making food look mouth-wateringly tempting and well, simply irresistible.
Good photography can be a short-term investment with long term rewards.
