Many people feel the limitations of indoor, natural light, food photography. Some photographers actually believe you simply can’t achieve any good images unless you have a bright, sunny day. I used to feel that way too until I discovered that all photography revolves around light, no matter how much or how little is available. It’s up to you, the photographer, to learn how to manipulate your environment & get the shot you envisioned!
If you’ve ever put your camera away on a cloudy, overcast days or fought with underexposed, flat images, perhaps you’ll understand. Photographing food on dark days can be the worst! In fact, I used to constantly check the weather to make sure I would have the perfect light to capture my food.
But then things changed when I started focusing on the light I had available. I soon discovered that some of my best images started taking shape on the very days I used to avoid!
