2. Less Is More

Minimal props and simple garnishes really let your photography pop on its own. Don't be afraid to edit, edit, and edit some more. 

3. Learn to Love Natural Light

When it comes to food photography, natural light is your best friend. There's no alternative or substitute for it. 

4. Don't Be Afraid of Color

Color is your other best friend. Don't be afraid to play around with bright, bold colors to find out which color palettes work best to fit your food style and the overall feel of your Instagram feed.

5. Layer on the Texture

When it comes to food styling, my favorite prop is the food itself. Coarse granules of sea salt and pepper, bits of herbs, and thinly sliced onions -- pile these garnishes on, and don't be afraid to get a little messy. These final touches will create beautiful built-in texture.
