Make Your Listing Photo Shoots Perfect




It is essential that your photos are well lit. A nice soft light can make much difference in photos. If you take the picture in a dimly lit place, it can be more challenging for the camera you are using (especially for mobile cameras) to process the photos and may result in grainy and dark images. In the same way, a photo taken in very harsh lighting loses details and may be unflattering. All the details can be appreciated more if they can be seen. Make sure that your photo is exposed correctly. Not too dark and not too bright. 



A food shot should show its natural colors. Sometimes light with a different temperature or tint like yellow, green, blue, or red cheapens the look of the food. Watch out for unflattering colors that may make your food look different from what it looks like. White light gives the food its original colors when photographed. Make sure that your photos stay true to the color of the food to make it look good.




Make sure that the photo's focus is on the food that is the subject of the image. The eye automatically goes to the focused part, so it may not be that appealing if it is not focused on your food photo. If you are using a flat lay, certain elements may have a different height than your food, and your camera might choose to focus on that or the table. Make sure that it is focused on the food and not on the other elements.

There are many reasons why we want our food pictures to look good, but it is also essential that you enjoy eating them after. However, if you are in the food and restaurant industry, it may be wise to have a professional take your food pictures.
