Food for thought

It can be a challenge to get bland foods to look "wow!" but with some practice, you'll be taking photos that look like you're hanging out in the kitchens of top chefs. Just remember that all food has the potential to be eye candy, so even if you're whipping up just a simple appetizer platter, take a moment to photograph it using these tricks. Any meal is a great time to practice.
