Best Tips for Professional Smartphone Food Photography

How to take stunning food photos using smartphones

Smartphone Food Photography

1.

If you’re snapping away at a high shutter speed, you’ll end up with blurred images. That’s because the light-sensitive part of the phone’s camera lens needs a bit of a break every now and then, otherwise it goes into standby mode, which stops working altogether. So, you need to take a few seconds to lower your camera’s shutter speed, which means switching your phone into ‘burst mode’. This helps the camera to keep taking images while it waits for the shutter speed to drop to a lower setting. This can be done by tapping the screen, which then brings up a menu of settings (see image below). The settings you choose here will affect the quality of the image you take. Most likely you’ll be looking to set the camera to ‘Shutter’ mode, which will shoot images every few seconds.

Ice Cream Photography

What do photographers use for ice cream photography?
