Make sure your subject is well lit, find a spot in your house or restaurant where there is enough lighting to bring out the color in your food.

3. Rule of Thirds


Employ the rule of thirds, avoid putting our subject dead center of the photo, imagine drawing 2 horizontal line and 2 vertical lines across the photo making three columns, three rows and nine sections in the image. The main subject of the photo (the bacon) is placed on or near of the intersections of the imaginary lines.


4. Take a Closer Shot
