As I was approaching the final few days of a 170-recipe cookbook I was commissioned to write and style, I had a call from London community station Zone One radio as they were doing a programme about food photography. Could they come along to the shoot to talk to me?
Their journalist joined us on the shoot to find out more about food styling and photography. We were in the middle of shooting a slow roast pork belly and the conversation centred around how to make the food look as appetising as possible. Food should always look relaxed and natural, even if it’s a fancy recipe – and that can mean choosing the right props and deciding on the most flattering angle.
