Decorating A Kitchen With Canvas Prints: Photo Your Food

 

This makes the kitchen’s decorations arguably more important than those in any other room in the home, and the presence of canvas prints can either make or break a kitchen. If you are a cook who has great pride in your edible creations, one of the best decor ideas for your kitchen are beautiful prints of your food. These kitchen decorations are personal, appropriate, and will inspire hunger in your home’s inhabitants. However, food photos are difficult - you can’t just remove a dish from the oven and place it on the counter and snap a canvas-worthy photo. Here are three tips that may help you out:

 

The first food photography rule is that the subject matter isn’t always meant to eat. Of course you will eat it, but it needs to be carefully arranged for the photo. You must think of the food as any other work of art, and compose it - arrange the veggies, fluff the potatoes, and if the meat is looking a bit dry, a glaze of oil will make it look perfectly delectable. Your canvas prints are first and foremost meant for decorating - not eating!

Color is key - if your recipe is naturally monochromatic or neutral-colored, consider adding a bit of color even if it is not normally how it would be served. This could be with some sides or non-standard toppings, or with bright plates and silverware and other aspects of the place-setting. Above all, color is a necessity unless you are contracting an already brightly-colored kitchen with neutrality.

There will be a strong urge to get in close and focus the shot on the food, but it may be with considering zooming out a little, pulling the camera back ever so slightly to get other aspects of the composition into the shot. Some casually implemented kitchen arrangements, or the texture of a counter-top, or just the sunlight falling on the surface behind the plate can add charm and dimension to the image. A plate or dish in isolation with an absence of context looks like an advertisement, not a dinner you’ve prepared for your family.
