Today I'd like to share some more useful (of course, from my POV) links: the first one is to the interview with Jennifer Davick who is the Food Photographer at Southern Living magazine in Alabama. I especially like she uses only real food, "nothing is doctored or faked" - that's great, I adhere to this position in my practice.
She says: "Simplicity is the best approach with food. Simplicity takes restraint. Less is more... Less sauce, less food, less plate. Try to be aware of scale and keep food in context. ...Begin by finding some soft window light and photograph your food while it's fresh. Remember: beautiful things make for beautiful photos, so be aware of your surfaces, plates and other details"
Her portfolio illustrates well this principle, it is quite interesting and worth to be learned.
Another source I'd like to share will help to set lighting for food shooting, although there are some great food photos there too. It is a blog of Atlanta-based photographer who gives very useful advices.
