Wondering Why Your Food Photos Look Dull and Lifeless?

Wondering Why Your Food Photos Look Dull and Lifeless? I have the answer for you.

Recently, I put out a food photo poll, and many of you said your greatest food photography challenge was around photo colors. Here’s some of your feedback.

Responses to the question: What’s your biggest challenge when it comes to taking food photos?

You said:

To make them look colourful

as well as

Lifeless color

and yes…

My food looks dull and lifeless

The Food Photo Struggle

You guys…the struggle is real. And it was my struggle many years ago too.

But over the years, I took photography lessons, read countless tutorials (even some books), did every photography session I could at blog conferences, got tips from friends, analyzed my own photos over and over, and basically did everything I could to improve my food photography. And I still do.

It’s a struggle, but it’s a struggle I love. The challenge is actually fun for me.

But enough about me being a photography geek.
