Web Design: Photo Selection

Sitewise Reviews

General WIPS

Photos should be professionally done.

If your budget is tight, consider asking a local high school or college photography student.

For a cohesive look across your site, consider selecting photos with one or two similar main colors.

Make sure the photos of food actually look appetizing (this is a common mistake!). Great food photos are VERY difficult to achieve without expert lighting and photography skills.

If you do try to do it yourself, make sure the area is well lit.

Clear the area around the plate of food so that the food is the focus in the frame.

Make the food specifically for the pictures and not to eat! Pictures will be the most important thing of your website. Don’t take shortcuts.
