This week's challenge is...

Colourful sweets food photography


Food — it’s something we already create every day, be it a simple sandwich or a decadent dessert. This week, instead of simply cooking your meals, we’re challenging you to photograph them too! You don’t have to be a professional chef (of food stylist) to create mouthwatering food images. All it takes is some patience and care. Think about what you want to say with your images; narrative is incredibly important when it comes to food photography. Think about your composition, choice of backgrounds and props etc.

If you haven’t already watched our range of food photography classes, below are a few of our most popular classes, from natural light photography to still life shots of fresh fruit. You’ll find a range of professional tips that will greatly help you throughout this challenge. Good luck (and enjoy).
