Delicious Memories

Real-life food photography at home

Labels: How To

1 | Pay attention to detail. Slow down. Savor the process from start to finish.

2 | Seek out great natural light in your kitchen or cooking space.

3 | Choose linens, utensils and cookware, paying attention to their colors and textures.

4 | Don't be afraid to get messy and document the messy! Cooking is a full-contact sport and you're going to get your hands dirty.

5 | Focus on the "real"—floury, messy, dirty dishes all included.

6 | Hands are also encouraged. Capturing your own hands, and the hands of those helping, can be a beautiful detail to record.

7 | Tell a story. By capturing from start to finish, you tell the story naturally.

8 | Eat and enjoy! Don't forget to document that first yummy bite or smiling faces around your table.
