Food Photography – 3 Exquisite Tips

Food Photography - 3 Exquisite Tips

Food Photography Ideas.

All right, This time around, not just food for thought :)

Some food for you to cherish, relish and of course clicking. So here is my take on my first ever food photography experiments. I had previously done splash photography taking some food items, but this time around the i’ll discuss a different mindset around the specific food photography.

” There is usually a tiny unseen thing that makes “THE  FLAVOR” in the Food.”

I had tried to highlight the flavor around the food.  Its important to highlight that. We all know how much we cherish and appreciate those tiny detailing in food. Have a look at the dressings on the cake and the donuts. Pro Tip: Use Macro shots to capture those tiny beauty detailing on food.



2. Another thing that i want to emphasize is the mood that food creates. I have known that there is a lot of drama hidden around the food. One can use this drama to explore the creative freedom. I have tried to use some small toys as props around food items, just to illustrate their actual size in context with a macro shot and secondly you can make them witty as per your humor Quotient too. Tip: Use Props and use them fantas(y)tically :)






3.Every Aroma and Flavor has a color.

This is true and this cant be explained. Tip:Highlight colors that you smell the most.

See it for yourself.






Happy Clicking


Product Photography – ESP Bass

Product Photography – ESP Bass

This post features my latest product shoot for the ESP bass guitar. I am going to discuss and illustrate the mindset of a photographer behind doing a product shoot. Before I start, I’d like to mention that there is a difference between shooting products for a catalogue and an advertising centric photo shoot.

I have chosen to do a low key of this product because for me the sound of the base is more of a darker nature, simple. Next I find the string and the long fret-board of the bass very intriguing. So I decided to go ahead and click these two in somewhat different manner. So Tip number 1 is to find the most intriguing point in a product. As an example I highlight the looooong fret-board in an exclusive image highlighting the quality of rosewood and fret-board  marks.


The second thing that I want to highlight is the concealing factor in an advertising product-shoot. You’ve got to click some of the images that keep the viewers in a state of wanting for more. So in other words, I like to keep the advertising product photo-shoot more of an abstract photo-shoot. But that does not mean that you skip showing the full product in high definition for the customers / viewers to have a full look upon.


Lastly every product has a USP, it is supremely important to click that. Missing the USP of a product while a shoot is a deadly sin. For example in this product shoot the headstock is meticulously designed. So I have generously mixed super heavy bass strings with the headstock shots.

Another Unique Selling Point of this bass is the ivory fret-board mark that I highlight here.



I hope this article helps and inspires you to click your next product photo-shoot with some new sparks of ideas.

Happy Clicking to all. Peace.


Panorama versus Wide-Angle Landscapes

The wall

Panorama and Landscapes

Most people easily fall into the temptation of covering an almost 360 degree view of a landscape that they are attracted to. No doubt, panorama that features in almost every phone and camera these days is a tool which is often lamely compared with wide angle landscape photography. Easier said than done, these techniques are very intricate, sophisticated and different in their own aspects of applications. None of the two is superior to the other though they serve and require different approach of photography.

Landscape Photography is about a perspective and more than the view an expression is captured. However Panorama focuses on covering the demographic of a location. Again going by the rule of thumb, a good landscape is captured at the right moment in the right spirit and of course with a lot of technical flawlessness.

If you are a messiah of Google Earth and you want a 360 degree view to share, go ahead and use panorama.


So it all boils down to just putting your own touch in landscapes.

A Leaf Left..


A Leaf Left..

I was a green, I was an oxygen, I was an abode to that jewel called dew.

I was all this before all the cloud of grime this world had disbursed.

I hung on to a tree, testing my strength to hold on.

I rubbed some dust off of my eyes to see, that woman under the shade of my tree.

It was a shade of me,

formed from a lot many, some younger and some older than me.

She took out a cigarette from the box, she moved out of her devil black ride called Mercedes.

Every puff of hers, every bit of that gray haze, seized my eyes,

I knew before any rain could wash my eyes clear, i’d leave;

I knew i’d leave and my tree screamed ” A leaf left…

yet another leaf left.
