What tips are out there for taking pics of your well prepared, knife skill heavy meal? I always find most food pics to be lackluster. Visuals can make or break a meal. Most FB pics that I encounter do not do justice to the actual meal. Can anyone offer any tips?

Take lots of pics, make sure there isn't too much glare, pay attention to reflections, and be critical! :D :D Also, sometimes less is more, but be sure to get enough action also. Bad lighting can occur from bad angle, so try a few different angles.

Find a light source where you don't need a flash. Decent camera, tri-pod. (a small counter top model for small point and shoot cameras). Pay attention to the details. The camera doesn't lie. Watch for smudges, food particals etc. Think about angles. Use a basic photo editor to edit the photo before uploading. And remember it's all about light and where it is.

Great thread. I agree with all the advice here. I find that I hate my food pictures. I have improved them by using more light, and focusing on the fact that I will take a picture when I plate. Height, color contrast, crispness, and a nice gloss help. A quality camera can't hurt either, but I'm stuck with my cell phone...
