Product food Photography in UAE is a popular and lucrative niche. Everyone loves mouthwatering food photos that appear on social media or in cookbooks.

Many professional food photographers started as chefs orfood bloggers. While pursuing their passion, they discovered their talent and interest in food photography.

Some of them now work in commercial photography, shooting food advertisement for famous clients.

The features of the products are highly important for customers and they are also responsible for making one product distinguished from other products that can be used for the same purpose, but the first thing that attracts the attention of any customer to a specific product is the photo of that product. Those product food photography in Dubai and product food photography in Sharjah that are professionally photographed to be found everywhere like lifestyle Magzines, websites, shops and even streets are expected to be sold in large numbers u, like other products that are not photographed even if they are of higher quality. So, if you are a business owner and want to increase your sales to generate high earnings, you have to think of photographing your products. There are countless product photographers who offer this service and specialize in product, commercial and advertising photography.

 Set up your background.

Getting the right background not only keeps the focus on the product you’re photographing, but it also helps simplify the editing process when it comes time for post-production. Try using a white or light backdrop, as this will make it easier to remove unwanted objects and retouch photos.

Luckily, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on a fancy backdrop to get the perfect shot. There are a couple affordable options that will do the job:

Shooting table Angles 

If you’re going to have several photoshoots, you might want to order a white sweet off of Amazon. But if you want to go the homemade route, you can make your own chair-mounted sweep using a roll of white craft paper. 

All you have to do is push the back of the chair against a wall and tape the craft paper on the wall above the chair, allowing it to fall to the ground. This will create a clean transition between the vertical and horizontal planes whenever you position your product on the chair. I’ve used this technic for almost every product food photography in Abu Dhabi

Or, another option is to clamp the sweep to the top of the chair and allow the paper to drape down the chair, which will create the same seamless effect.

However, for larger products such as furniture, you’ll need to invest in a stand-mounted sweep like the one below. Or, you can use the same method as the chair-mounted sweep by taping white craft paper to the wall. 

Light tent

Another affordable option for a backdrop is to build your own light tent, otherwise called a lightbox. This is a wireframe box with translucent walls which helps create an evenly distributed light around the object in focus. 

To make your own, you’ll need a plastic storage container, placed on its side with the lid off. 

Next, cover the bottom — and all the other sides, if you’re wanting a more evenly distributed light — with white paper. 

Lastly, place an artificial light on either side of the container, or simply use natural light from a nearby window if you’re working on a budget.
