My love for Thai food started at a very young age when my mother introduced me to it. I remember loving Pad Thai so much I asked for seconds every time!
As time went by, I was introduced to more and more Thai food. I frequented Thai restaurants near my area and researched ones that are supposed to be good, but I had to travel for locally.
My stomach would always be satisfied after leaving these restaurants; however, the curiosity for the authentic Thai standard was not.
So, when I started working, I decided to save up and head to Thailand for my first trip abroad. Knowing that this trip is something I will remember for the rest of my life, I geared up to make sure that I capture every foodie moment I get.
Having said that, I want to share with you the best tips on how to take great food photos when travelling.
The first thing you need to make sure is that your gear is complete. It doesn’t matter what equipment you are going to use to take photos. It can be a camera or just your phone.
Just make sure that you have backup battery packs, power bank and even extra storage to make sure you don’t miss out because of gear limitations.
Get It While It’s Hot
I am known to get annoyed with friends who take photos before eating, but it should be known that there is an exception to that rule.
When taking food photos while travelling, it is always best to take it when the food is freshly served and prepared.
I only do this when I travel and not when I eat at my usual go-to places. Obviously, food photos will look more appetizing if it has not been eaten yet.
This is more inviting to the ones who will be looking at it and will make them wonder how it tastes.
No Blurred Photos, Please
The risks of blurred photos are higher if you are using a smartphone to take photos. Smartphones don’t have the same shutter speed…
