There are many challenges in shooting food. The best way to overcome most of the challenges is to good pre-production. You can never plan enough. There are so many factors that can go wrong such as food preparation, styling, layouts, etc.
I'll try to inform how I do things, why I do them, and the experiences I have along the way. Hopefully, you can learn from my pursuit of learning how to create images and enjoying all the aspects that it brings.
