Title: Plate to Pixel: Digital Food Photography & Styling

By: Hélène Dujardin

The Skinny: Plate to Pixel is a colorful instruction manual of sorts which aims to teach many creative ways to display food.  It explains the use of lighting techniques, as well as post-processing, for amateur and professional photographers alike. For example, some suggestions include the use of textured fabrics in the background and stray silverware and spices as additional props.

The Pros: Large, gorgeous, full-color photos in an easy-to-read format. Topics are explained in simple language and the accompanying photos illustrate the points well.

The Cons: None.

The Bottom Line: I have enjoyed food photography for sometime now. Although I don’t consider myself an expert in the kitchen, I absolutely love food and all the various ways it can be arranged. Plate to Pixel is a good resource for anyone who is still new to food photography or is looking to brush up on their technique.
