2. Opt for natural lighting
Flash is not as flattering as natural light. The latter makes pictures look much better. The only problem is that you can hardly find natural light in bars, cafes and restaurants. What you can do is to take your dish and walk over to a window. It’s sometimes good to order meals in the day when the light is natural. If you are having your lunch or dinner outside, remember to find a place with shadow since direct sunlight casts shadows on food and other items.
