Photographing food and trying to elevate a culinary creation is a fun and unique challenge. Capturing the intricate and detailed presence of a well composed plate or a food product requires respect for both the creator of the item and also the subject of the image. Food itself is so beautiful in its complexity and visual impact. In a world of choice of where a customer can spend their food dollars, people generally eat with their eyes. Having sharp images that really showcase a meal or food product can give any restaurant or food creator a huge advantage in the world of social media and on review sites.
