Dishing Up a Great Food Photo

While happily 'pinning' the other day I happened to notice that I'm not the only foodie out there.  Recipes and food photos abound on the popular social networking site Pinterest.  Yet, while many pictures had my mouth watering, there were others that inspired no salivating and even, on rare occasion, were downright unappealing.

The issue here is that producing a delectably attractive photograph of food is not just about one's level of culinary skill but also requires an artistic eye and some photographic ability.  Having a few little tricks up your sleeve won't hurt either, as they can make a kitchen tragedy appear to be a triumph.

Here are some tips to help you serve up a great food photo:
