SM CITY BALIWAG FOOD FEST: FEAST FOR THE EYES AND THE PALATE!

Ever since I started blogging, FOOD has always been a favorite subject... to photograph, to write about and of course, to taste.  Blogging has given me awesome food experiences. No one can beat that happy feeling as you describe the mouth watering dishes. Sometimes I ran out of adjectives to describe the gustatory satisfaction, that I just present to my readers, beautiful photos, hoping that somehow, the would be enticed to try it for themselves.


I learned that if I want to blog about food, I must learn a few basic in food photography.  So I started researching about FLAT LAY.  I'm still not an expert in this, but I am slowly learning the tricks.  So I was happy to be in the company of fellow foodie-bloggers at the SM CITY BALIWAG FOOD FEST for an afternoon sesh in food styling, photography and flat lay!








FLAT LAY / FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS:

1.  Choose the HERO for your flat lay.  Once you've chosen it, the other elements (food, props) now become BIT PLAYERS.  It is also interesting to use different angles and lines. 



2.  HEIGHT is might in Flat Lay.  You might be needing a chair or stool to get the shot that you want.  




3.  Create a STORY.  

"Beat the summer heat"
"Gotta munch on that meatballs first"
"Morning!  What's for brunch?"



Hope you will have a fun time experimenting on your next food shots my dear readers.... as I enjoyed my Saturday afternoon at the SM CIty Baliwag Food Fest.



Get a glimpse of our super fun experience....
