Tony bought me a new camera for our first wedding anniversary and unfortunately I still don’t know how to use the functions properly, but I’m trying to learn!
Lighting has always been a problem for me, especially when I’m taking photos of food. When I joined the Daring Bakers I found a post on how to make a Macro Photo Studio by Strobist.
Start out with a good size box
Cut windows in three of the sides & cut off the top and bottom flap (I hadn’t cut off the bottom flap yet in this picture)
Tape white tissue paper (I doubled mine) to the windows. Cut a piece of white poster paper to fit inside. Add some lights to the top and/or the sides and snap away!
I tried a couple different white balance options, but so far this is what I’ve figured out.
Any suggestions or tips on how to take good photos of food? I have a Canon Rebel XSI. If you have any tips on settings for my specific camera I sure would appreciate it!
