In my last food photography post I talked about using light, this time I want to build on that and show some examples of how to create different moods in your food photography. The three main areas that I work with when setting the mood for my photo are basically the use of each of the areas I have talked about in the last three posts in this series.
- Your Setup – what kind of background / table top you are going to use
- Your Props – what colours, styles and details you add to the image
- Your Lighting – how you light the image to enhance the image
As you can see I have just baked a batch of muffins with different cupcake papers and changed the table top colour in the image to create something that looks different.
I have chosen in this series to focus on using 4 different styles or moods but the possibilities and combinations are only limited by your imagination. I hope you will enjoy expanding your creativity and experimenting with different feelings and mood you can create with your food photography.
