A year ago I bought a Canon Rebel T3i, prior to that I was posting pictures taken with my iPhone. To make a long story short, I'm still learning how to photograph food. However, I've made a lot of mistakes, wasted plenty of time, and have now adopted a few key rules. I thought it would be fun to share some of what I've learned along the way. If you like these tips you may also want to check out a few on photographing food from the lovely ABM blog.
