The Brief:

Check out the Wilkinson Cameras Blog where you’ll find Eight Great Food Photography Tips; this month’s guest blog from Camera Jabber.

We are looking for beautiful food images, which are well presented and composed. Think about the layout, the dish or item you are photographing as well as the plates or surface it is resting on. Lighting is also key, whether using natural light or photography lightining. We’re not looking for a snapshot of your lunch!

Below you’ll find a gallery of images from Digital Splash 17’s speakers Aspire. Aspire is made up of Catherine Connor and Jenny Heyworth. If you’re feeling inspired by this month’s theme and want to take your food photography further then their Digital Splash Food Photography and Styling Seminar and Food Styling Workshop are perfect for you! Find out more about them here.

When submitting an image (particularly via Twitter or Instagram) then please ensure you have an original full sized copy of the image with a resolution of at least 300 dpi and a minimum length of 3000 pixels on the shortest side. Final images will be professionally printed to at least A2 size, so we may contact you asking for the original file if you are successful.
