Yogurt Food Photography Critique and Behind the Scenes
I tried to put together another image critique and I had some behind the scenes photos too, so I included them. I would think that a novice food photographer would be curious to see what a food shoot looks like and to see a little of what goes on behind and in front of, the camera. The video talks a little about what I like about the photo and maybe a little of what we take into consideration when setting up a shot like this.
The window was set up to help give the image that “light and airy” feel. It was meant to be “blown out”, so we really didn’t need to have anything behind it. One thing you might notice is just how crisp the shadows are, but how they pretty much go unnoticed in the final image. That’s the key to getting amazing texture in your food photos.

I hope you got something out of this food photography critique. If you did or didn’t, please leave a comment below and let me know how I can improve, and what I can do to make this a better resource for you. Happy shooting and don’t eat any props! :o)
