Photographing FOOD: Color & Camera | I’m Lovin’ It

 

Back in January I introduced you to Photographing FOOD ebook by Taylor Mathis,  a downloadable Ezine dedicated to helping you improve your food photography. It was the first in a series of issues dedicated to providing you the know-how to create beautiful food photography.  Each issue will cover one topic and how that relates to food photography!

Taylor Mathis has now released photographing FOOD issue 2 Color & Camera, a full color 34 page downloadable PDF available for $5

Learn how color theory can be used to bring harmony to your images! In the second half of the issue, you will see that it isn’t the camera that makes the image it’s the photographer

topics covered in Issue 2…

  • the color wheel can be used in your food photography
  • Monochromatic, Analogous, Complimentary, and Split Complimentary color patterns
  • Camera Angles
  • 4 cameras and one subject, what kind of camera is best?
  • How to shoot tethered using a tripod arm
  • How to use Aperture as a creative tool in your food photography!
  • and much more!

Photographing Food Issue 2 Color and Camera

This issue  is all about color theory and camera controls! Taylor explains how to choose what colors to use in your images.  Can’t decide what background will be best?  You will love this guide to color theory.  I can’t wait to apply this to my own photos! Sometimes I really struggle with color, I don’t know why I never thought to look at a color wheel!   In the camera section, Taylor explains all about aperture, camera angles, and the secrets to using a tripod arm and shooting tethered through your computer. He also walks you through a challenge using the same subject with 4 different types of cameras; the disposable camera, the point and shoot camera,  the camera phone and the DSLR camera.

Photographing Food 2 look inside

I said this about the first issue of Photographing FOOD and I’m going to say it again…….Taylor takes all the information you need to learn how to take pictures that make people hungry, and he breaks it down into bite sized portions (issues) so it’s not overwhelming.  By focusing on only a few aspects in each issue, you are not bewildered with too much information all at once.

Start with issue one, Window Lighting.  In this ebook, you will learn how to get the best photo you can with or without window lighting.   You’ll get tutorials on how to set up your own diy studio with a $10 light source  and even tips on what angle is best for the situation.  This issue is filled with step by step and behind the scene shots showing you exactly how he arrived at each final shot.

Then when you have mastered lighting, move on to issue 2, Color & Camera.

Each Photographing FOOD ebook is only $5 and formatted to read beautifully on your computer, ipad or iphone. It’s a small price to pay if you’re looking to improve your photos, especially food photos!  I cannot wait for the next issue to come out.

    Cheryl, I need all the photography help I can get! :D Can’t wait until the day I have a big girl camera. My CoolPix is great…but, it’s not the same. :-(
    Hope your weekend is extraordinary!

    It’s definitely not something most can just jump in to & be great at. With the exception of those that seem to be just absolutely gifted with it- most have to work at it. These are great for helping with that.
