My current Mobile Phone Food Photography Workflow.
For taking pictures of food in good lighting conditions, I use the following workflow:
- Take the shot with the native camera app
- Open the picture in Snapseed to rework
- Save to Pictures
- Open new version in Instagam
- Finish editing and share through Instagram
This way you can get some lovely results in Snapseed, and then use Instagram for sharing across your Social Media channels and a final tweek if needed.
Instagram is great for its photo sharing options, and good for a quick snap. However, often images edited in this app look like quite similar – so I use it sparingly.
I like to have a bit more control over the final image than instagram allows – that said the results can be lovely.
If the lighting conditions are poor, I use Filterstorm to correct the image contrast and colour balance before opening in Snapseed and following the workflow outlined above.
