Manfrotto Food Photography eBook

Nowadays it seems every time you go to a restaurant, there’s somebody shooting a photo of their plate of food to post up onto some social media
network to share with their friends. In fact, it’s become so widespread that
some top restaurants have now banned it!
While taking a quick snap with your phone can be a blast – and can be
improved with a little know-how such as a small LED light to boost the
lighting – taking professional-quality photos of food can be fun and not as
difficult as you’d think. And it’s largely thanks to digital SLRs that can work
really well at lower light levels due to their amazing high ISO capabilities. In this guide, we’ll be telling you about the equipment you’ll need and the techniques to use to take some truly great photographs of food.
