What you shoot your food on is just as important as the subject you are shooting. A well chosen background can tell a story, complement the subject, and make for a stronger and more powerful image! Paper, tile, wood, fabric, stone, etc… with so many options how do you choose? In Issue 7 of photographing FOOD, I will show you some of my favorite backgrounds that are readily available right in your grocery store. Feeling artistic and want a completely custom background? I will show you how I paint, stain, and even decoupage my way to beautiful one-of-a-kind backgrounds that are perfect for any type of cuisine! This is a 39 page full color PDF.
