Presenting India's Leading Food Photographers Whose Amazing Captures Can Leave Us Drooling
By: Lily Dechamma on Feb 16th, 2016

Ever wondered where restaurants and magazines get such great pictures of food from? They seem so real and delicious. The credit goes to food photographers for their stunning work. Food photography is rather tricky as it demands perfect lighting. The photographer also needs to be quick as food items are perishable and don't tend to last long.

We have always been curious about how the photographs turn out as delicious as they do. Luckily for us we could get across to Canvera, who put us in touch with some of the best food photographers in India, and this is what we learnt.

They excel in capturing detailed, textured images of food and its surroundings. Details apart, there is a festive quality about their captures. If you notice these images, you will see that there are several elements in the image, the professionals that they are, they manage to capture each of those elements with equal focus and yet the main subject/ dish stands out.

In a city like Kolkata where the dwellers are picky about their food, its a great opportunity for Socios, as well as a daunting challenge. There is little room for error and needless to say Socios scores on all the fronts.

Be it dimsums or dessert, Krishna Angira has a knack for food photography. Delicious food captured in all its lustre. Krishna is known for his perfectly-lit food shots. The two captures here caught our eye not just because it features our cheat meal, but also because we think chocolates or fries are hard to capture and make it seem as good as the real thing. Needless to say the experts have managed to make us drool.
