Mothers who love cooking and are always ready to experiment, often take pictures of their work in the kitchen. But more often than not, they are alone in the kitchen and are mostly busy peeling, chopping, mixing, sautéing, boiling and... the list is endless.
But worry not, here are some tips which will help you take your own pictures while at work in the kitchen. You don’t have to worry about getting the camera dirty or you not being in the frame.
1. If you are one of those who want to capture the actual process of cooking and show the step-by-step slideshow before showing what the end result looks like, then you must ensure a few basic things. For instance, there is ample natural light in the kitchen. If not, switch on all the lights inside the kitchen and shoot in night mode. But that might compromise on your dish’s colour.
2. The self-timer is going to come to your rescue if you are alone. Find a good spot in the kitchen where you can place the camera. It should give a good view of you while cooking and the rest of the kitchen as well.
3. For taking pictures of ingredients, you can simply shoot yourself. DO NOT use the flash. It might make some food items look different in colour than what those really are.
4. If you want to take pictures in which your hands are visible, say while mixing or chopping, then try this simple trick: Hang your camera on your neck and set the self-timer to five seconds. This will give you enough time to leave it, and start working with your hands.
5. Plate your masterpiece tastefully so that the final product not only looks yummy but classy too.
