Photographing food is often more difficult than it looks.

Making something appear fresh, cold or hot can be an arduous task, particularly when you are simultaneously tending to your camera and lighting.

If your budget allows, hire a stylist to help you build the shot. You can focus on your composition and lighting while they work their magic.

However, if you are shooting alone, you can still come away with good results.

Armed with a few simple techniques, you can produce your own mouth-watering images.
