Food Photography Styles

One of the passions that has developed as I’ve become more serious about photography is food photography.  I tend towards one or two certain styles in my food photography so I thought I would challenge myself a little and try to expand my styles a little.

This post is inspired by a post I saw on dessertsforbreakfast.com I had been looking for food photography styles to use over on my other blog thesweetexplorer.com and loved their post where they showed the different styles using the same cake.  In their post they identified 6 major styles and set up 8 shots.  I am only going for 4 photos to show the styles that I am interested in trying out and working with. I haven’t defined them quite the same:

– bright and propped
– dark and dramatic
– rustic
– bold and colourful

I decided to photograph the humble raspberry as my subject and came out with these four different images that give a different feel with only slight adjustments and change in perspective.
