Some of you may already know that I’m writing another book, and you might also know that this next one will be about food photography! I’m really excited about this book, it’s so far been a really fun process and I’ve also been creating a lot of yummy photos to go in it (which you’ve probably already previewed if you read my blog). This will be my third book with Peachpit and another addition to the “Snapshots to Great Shots” series. I was waiting for the cover-shot to be updated on Amazon with the final image before I posted this to my blog, so here it is! It’s officially official and is available for pre-order on Amazon.com, and it should be in print and released sometime late Summer (August-ish).
This book is for anyone interested in food photography. Whether you’re new to photography or have been a photographer for years, you’ll find a lot of relevant information on how to photograph, style and even edit your food photographs on the computer. The first two chapters are geared towards beginning photographers, as I explain the basics of photography and gear that can be used when photographing food. In the rest of the book I talk about light, styling, props, composition, editing in Adobe Photoshop and also an entire chapter on behind-the-scenes setups from start-to-finish to include styling, lighting (with BTS illustrations and photographs), and the editing process.
