Food porn


I love food and I love… photography. Here in UK we have advanced commercial photography category called food porn. Close up macro shots of dripping ice cream on steaming hot apple pie, slicing of juicy turkey fillet and so on, you get the idea. Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and other stores often use these shots in ads to emphasize the premiumness/quality of ingredients. There is even official Wikipedia entry on this subject.
I’ve dipped my toes in this field as well, with few themed shots and bemused models. The truth is, making food look good is bloody hard, much harder than getting the dress or handbag look nice, but the results are well worth the effort. I’m looking to expand my food porn collection so suggestions and ideas on food to feature next are welcome:) May be something with eggs considering that Easter is coming…


About Me

I've been to 112 countries (out of 193), yay! My mission is to become first ever Latvian to go to every country in the world.
After 10 years on the road, I've moved back home to Latvia for a bit. This blog is about travel, photography and living in foreign countries.
