Working with people with food in their environment is a unique style of photography!

This set of photos mixes a little bit of portrait photography with food product photography; and I’ll be real and honest, for me it was tough. As I am as a photographer now, I recognize that my strongest skill is portraiture, with some product skill. More it is far more heavy with portraiture. Where these two mixed, I realized very quickly that I have some things to work on with adding another element to portrait photography. And I’m very excited to do that!

Here is a list from National Geographic about people and portrait tips! I’ve found it very useful and talks about the necessary basics when it comes to portraiture.

Let me know what you think of my photos and if you have any tips for what I should look for and what I can make better!
