Study and emulate the best photographers

Take time to study the best photographs taken by photographers in your field. As simple as it sounds, looking at other people’s work, finding out what it is about it appeals to you, and how it was done, what you don’t like about it and how to avoid that leads to improvement in your own photographing sessions.

A great photo will capture your interest and make you think. Have these pointing thoughts at the back of your mind:

  • What is it about the image that appeals to you. Is it the subject taken, the light, the angle, the composition etc Understanding the elements that work in a great photo helps you think of how to include them in your own photos.
  • What time of the day was the photo taken? Does the light make a difference? What direction does the light come from – back, front or side? Try to shoot during that time frame and see how it turns out.

If possible, dash off a quick question to the image creator and ask pertinent questions that you might have. A lot of times, people like to help and teach.

Enjoy the learning process but don’t forget to go out and create your own fantastic images. Check this link for more tips on photography.

      Hi Kew,

      I have two camera’s a small Canon and a bigger one. The smaller one costs me about $200 when I purchased it and the quality of photo is not bad, however, the bigger one Canon EOS 70D does a whole lot more but quite expensive – about $1,550 (I saved for quite a while to purchase it o).

      Since it’s just for your food photo, I don’t think you should invest heavily on a camera to start with and these big one’s would require someone teaching you how to use it effectively, so get one that you can manage easily.
