Overnight Steel-Cut Oats

This photo was my first submission to Foodgawker.  It was rejected for food/photo composition.

(I’m new to food photography and was so proud of this picture!)

  • Don’t be discouraged. My tally of rejections vs acceptances is tipped towards rejection too. Remember that composition is a very subjective thing. What you and I might think looks great may not tickle the fancy of the person working his/her way through today’s foodgawker or other food porn site. I find foodgawker and tastespotting are the most difficult to please. But that is OK. I take it as constructive feedback and look at how I can improve my photos. your photo looks fine. Perhaps it could have been taken at a slightly more pronounced angle so as to better showcase the food. Remember that ultimately, your aim is to show off the food at its best, not the surrounds. The food is the centrepiece! Happy shooting 🙂
