I spent all last Friday cooking and photographing food and I am still finding it very difficult to get the food to look nice and the styling correct. A lot of the times my food doesn’t look like the recipe I am cooking from so I do wonder if the food is sometimes cooked separately and plated up for the images you see in the magazines.

These were all shot at home using 2 lights. Large softbox at the rear, small softbox camera left and a reflector camera right. Really simple lighting.

Homemade mini beef wellington and Cassoulet soup with duck and toulouse sausage dumplings.

On Monday I spent the afternoon cooking 2 meals to be photographed to add to my food portfolio. The below images are some new food props I purchased on Sunday and the lighting set up used on Monday. For this food session I used 2 lights, front left and rear with a silver reflector on the right. Sorry about the quality of these images.

Here’s two finished images. Pork loin with maple paprika glaze with a warm spinach and bacon salad. The second image is creamy coriander and minted chicken.
