Additional Tips: This is a simple still life photo. I like to practice my food photography skills by doing still life photography. Often times, when you are photographing food, there is a hungry crowd of family members waiting patiently to eat your creation. By practicing with still life photos, you don’t have the pressure on you to rush so people can eat. You can experiment with your settings until you get the exact shot you are looking for!
