Vegan Food Has Never Looked so Good
This week on Fine Dining Lovers we took a look at some of the best plates of food we've ever seen.
Created by the Italian chef Simone Salvini the dishes express the natural beauty of ingredients and show the world that healthy vegan foods can look and taste delicious.
FDL spoke with the chef about his food philosophy, his cookbook Cucina Vegana and Salvini shared some of his best dishes for what has to be the sexiest selection of vegan food pictures on the web.
It's all a Matter of Perspective
This week saw the launch of the third lesson in FDL's Mobile Food Photography series. So far we've looked at the rise of food photography, the importance of lighting and this week we examined perspective and color - two great facets to consider when trying to improve your mobile food pictures.
There was a focus on textures and when to get close to your food with the camera and some valuable lessons on how to use perspective when trying to show food in the best possible way.
There was also the very important lesson that sometimes the camera should be left while food is eaten and enjoyed!
