From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
by Liza Gershman
 
On a professional commercial or editorial shoot, food stylists prepare food to make it look “real,” or better than real, which requires quite a few tricks. Setting the scene and telling a story is also the job of the stylist team, and once that has been created then the photographer and photo assistant handle the lighting, composition, and framing. If you are photographing for a blog, magazine, or cookbook, working with a great food stylist isn’t always possible, but using these helpful tips when photographing food will enhance your imagery.
 
Think of the food before you even begin to photograph and plan the steps that it takes to create a successful food image.
 
Ask yourself, what is the size, shape, height and dimension of the food? What makes the subject special or unique?
Read the entire article on the Canon Digital Learning Center.
