What is Food Photography Composition?

Composition in food photography is how you arrange items on your photo. Since photography is an art, you can do it in any way you want, but there are some rules that serve as guidelines. These rules ensure that the viewer stops scrolling for a moment and spends a little more time viewing your photo.

Generally speaking, composition is one of the most powerful food photography tools. Good news is, it’s not hard to master.

I created a downloadable guide with 5 composition techniques with visual examples and explanations.
