I started taking food photographs just over a year ago - and the first few pictures I took were pretty dreadful! Since then, I think I've improved a lot, but not by going on a course - just by looking at how other people did it and by experimenting. You can take great food photos even if you are simply using the camera in your smart phone! This image was taken on a smartphone: So - if you want some advice or just want to show us some examples of your photographs (even the ones that failed) then please post here. Or just ask a question, however dumb it seems.
