iPhone Food Photography
Updated: 3 hours ago
This was a personal creative project that I have started during the recent one month COVID-19 lockdown. The concept was minimalist photography of still life images of food and fruits.
I shot them with an iPhone XS Max and post edited on Lightroom mobile app. At the end of this post is a short video that compiled all of these images.
These items are basically found at home. I kept the props as simple as possible and focus only at one food item at a time. The props were nothing fancy, just a black wok and a dark coloured mat for backgrounds.
Depicting freshness of these fruits, I sprayed some water onto it and played around with melting ice.
Shot a few flat lay with negative space to create some editorial layouts.
iPhone is clever in emulating shallow depth of field just like a DSLR.
It is impressive what an iPhone can do. You just need to get a few techniques to make the photographs pops.
I have also started to conduct iPhone food photography workshop. Most participants are grocers, chefs and home-based businesses.
