We attend a Food Photography Workshop at Hedgehogs Nest in Rustenburg, there are so many aspects to this kind of photography. Apart from all the normal lighting setups I think the most important is the angle of a specific type of dish. Then comes in the background and maybe props to use with it, texture will be your main concern, depends on the look you are after. Lastly you have to work fast since the flowers quickly looks dried up or the leaves start to fall flat on the plate. The dishes with the ice cream was left in the fridge for last and in a hot summers day of almost 38deg we needed to take quick photos to give all the photographers a turn with it.
