You may think that if you don’t own a fancy, expensive camera, there’s no reason to even try to take better photos. Wrong, wrong, wrong! By making a few simple changes, you can improve your food photography, no matter what kind of camera you own: DSLR, point-and-shoot, or even a phone camera!
Back when my only smart device was my dinky iPod touch 4th gen, I actually preferred some of the photos I took with it to the ones I took with my Nikon D7000. Sure, the quality was pretty poor, but sometimes the overall feel of the photo I captured with my iPod just happened to be more in line with my vision.
One of the biggest factors that will determine the quality of your photo is the quality of your light. Of course cheap cameras can’t handle low light very well, but if your lighting is horrible, your photos will reflect it, even if you use a DSLR.
