Food images styling

Another post in this friendly site

i am a commercial photographer - a very beginner one – I make some pictures as a I attach for a supermarket but it’s a low budget project so the company doesn’t hire a food stylist or someone who can decorate the items before I take the picture- as you see the picture isnt that good -or it look sad-so the question is does any one know a way to gain some knowledge about food decoration or what ever it call??? or should I use Photoshop to decorate the image and how I can make these in a way it look real and not just copy and past ???

Re: Food images styling

I've been an assistant once for this company...

and we use a have a large bunch of plates, cutlery, napkins etc... That you buy at sales, garage sales etc...(because usually you need just one). We also had herbs (fresh). The main thing is usually cold tones doesn't make food appealing, so you can just try to add some slight yellow "light" on your food (my boss used a simple hand torch for that). "Dry" food is also always disappointing, add fake or real moisture (a simple spray with water, you can also add a bit of powdered gelatine with the water) seems to be better. Just my two cents...Look at the photos that makes you craving for food and try to figure out what the difference with "real" food.
