#16. Practice. A Lot. Have Fun!
Now go take some good food photos! Practice, practice, practice. I say it all the time to students. If you want to be a better photographer you have got to take a lot of pictures. It’s like any other art form. You want to be a good writer? You have to write a lot. If you want to be a good painter, paint and paint some more! Perhaps the most important tip is to have fun! Get together with others, join a foodie meet-up, or invite people over for a scrumptious meal and a night of food photography. Go on picnics with colorful food (and great natural light). If this becomes a chore, put the camera down for a while. Have a great time!
