How are smoothie bowls so photogenic? I mean COME ON, how good do these look!?
I’ve also been working on upping my food photography game, so hopefully that’s part of it too. But let’s be real, you could photograph this with a potato camera and it would still look delish!
As I mentioned before, I’m working on getting better at food photography. When I first started, oh gosh, my pictures were some kind of bad. Even then, I took enough shots that I could always find one or two that worked. Well, now that I’ve had a lot of practice, I’m trying to take my time to carefully set up each shot.
Some things I’m working on are:
- the arrangement of items in the picture
- camera settings
- framing of the shot
- using props
I’ve also purchased a roll of marble wrapping paper – because, am I really a blogger if I don’t have ONE marble surface? So, I’d been thinking about getting some kind of marble background, and this just happened to be on sale so I grabbed it, and it’s actually working out really well! I’m actually so lame that I’m pretty hyped about it haha! But, it also means that our kitchen table is now a designated blogging photography station, because you can’t really eat on wrapping paper and I’m not about to waste a good piece! ;). But we rarely use our dining table unless there are guests over anyway!
As you can see in the pictures above, almost every aspect of each picture is intentional: the spoons are placed where I want them, the peanuts are sprinkled all over, etc. When you do that, it takes a good picture & turns it into a great one. I’m really excited about this, it makes taking pictures so much more fun and rewarding!
In case you’re curious and want to learn more about food photography, I made a post called 5 Most Important Tips for Food Photography. I urge you to check it out if you do any kind of photography though!
Alright, on to the recipe! This is a peanut butter, chocolate & banana smoothie bowl! Enjoy & have fun!
Don’t forget to take lots of pictures of your beautiful creation! What’s your favourite smoothie bowl?
