5 Tips to Taking Beautiful Food Photos on your Phone

1. Find the light! Use natural light and turn off the flash.

2. Get up Close. If your iPhone camera offers Portrait mode, use it!

3. Turn On Camera Grid. This will help align a flat lay photo. (more from Apple)

4. Watch the Background. When taking photos, pay attention to the background, hands, feet, etc. Move the camera or the subject.

5. Edit! Because phones are backlit, printed photos will be darker. Using the basic Auto Enhance feature in your native camera works great!
