Let’s be honest — food almost always looks better in photographs than it does in real life, right? Eating food is sensorial. While we eat, our brain doesn’t only take in how the food looks. It absorbs aromas wafting from the plate, too. We hear a grill sizzle or a spoon clink against a dish and immediately salivate. Everything comes together when we finally taste.
Eating food is an experience. A food photographer heightens the beauty of food in an attempt to capture that experience. But only a professional food photographer can capture such memorable experiences in every single photograph.
