Sometimes I would rather just take images of my food and enjoy every mouthful and lose myself to the flavour rather than reviewing every time and having to focus on individual item placed in front of me, focusing my tastebuds on each chew rather than just enjoying it. So if I ever get in the mood of just snapping I shall start referring to them as food photography portfolio; because even though I’m there to enjoy my meal I still need to take good images.

Food photography is everywhere; on advertising posters, in cook books, on menus, on the wall of restaurants themselves, there is definitely a niche market for it and since food books are so popular at the moment with all different food cultures and dietary requirements etc etc there is definitely a calling for it.

Food photography is my second favourite genre of photography right behind floral and right ahead of travel. Travel is a close third but it’s not my strongest body of work. It’s very hard to perfect a travel image. You have to get rid of crates from the background, wait for the perfect lighting, get rid of those damn tourists out of the image. I guess that’s why it comes third to floral and food, because I can focus on one thing and also I have the right lens for them, I definitely don’t for travel.

So my first body of food photography focuses on the jacket potato. I love jacket potato, it’s the healthiest kind of potato and it’s gives you enought fuel to last the rest of the day. My favourite place to go to get a jacket potato is probably Spud U’ Like which offer all different toppings and the potato is cooked to perfection too!!  All soft and fluffy.

As you can see from the images I chose tuna and sweetcorn which is my absolute favourite and the healthiest, as long as they use full fat mayo (yeah note to all you diet buffs that read my posts, full fat is better than reduced fat and that’s for everything!)
