Food Props on Sunday, part 8 – Guest Blogger Meeta from What’s For Lunch Honey
This weeks guest blogger is made by another talented photographer and food propper, the lovely Meeta of What’s For Lunch Honey? has gracefully agreed to make a post about how she looks at food props and their various uses. Meeta and I have been friends for quite a few years now, I’m not that good at socializing via emails but slowly we have built up a solid friendship despite of my lack of consistency. I really enjoy her photography that I find both inspirational and beautiful and I really I’m sure you do too.
When I tell people I am a freelance food photographer and stylist, they usually are with me till the food photography part, albeit with a few funny looks. However, I see the huge question mark on their faces when I mention food styling. The question that always accompanies the look on the faces is “Why style food?” The answer is fairly simple: Food needs to be prepared and styled to feed the eyes and the imagination. It’s basically pimping up the food to look its best for a perfect photograph.
Thank you very much Meeta for taking the time to talk about food props!
