Food photography is one of those specialised photographic genres, but with over 20,000 recipes on Local, it is one that provides a lot of bang for buck.
My favourite food photographer is Nicole Young.
Not only does she take great photos herself, her book Food Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots is a terrific primer.
On her blog, the Food category is a great place to find a lot of the tips she uses in creating the imagery she needs for her work.
