I’ve never really done much food photography, and snaps of my food have mostly been limited to quick Instagrams of meals in restaurants. I’m never happy with the result – mine always seem badly lit, grainy, and because they are taken with the iPhone’s built-in wide-angle lens, everything on the table ends up looking a bit distorted.

Today I thought I would enter the Quaker Oats #ShowUsYourOats competition for a bit of fun, and went about it with a more professional approach. I found myself really enjoying the process of styling the food, as well as sorting out the light and other technical and creative aspects of the image.

The best part was, I got to eat my work at the end! I wonder if all food photographers get to devour what they shoot, or at least sample it.
