Food photography requires so much more than a photographer, a camera, and the product - it requires talented people to make the food look good! A little known secret is that food needs a lot of help to read correctly in print/online, let alone to look appealing and "mouth-watering." Authors and stylists Linda Bellingham, Jean Ann Bybee, and Brad G. Rogers teach aspiring food stylists, and photographers, the ins and outs of the craft, in their book, More Food Styling for Photographers & Stylists: A Guide to Creating Your Own Appetizing Art.

These talented stylists have filled "More Food Styling" with step-by-step photos that show you exactly how to construct the perfect subject - whether it be a burger and fries, a frothy beer, or a towering cake. The "photographer's comment" sections, extended from earlier styling guides by the trio, explain each shot and why it works. The included shopping lists provide all-encompassing lists of the essentials you'll need to complete assignments like a pro. Whether you're building a career, or simply want to make your culinary creations more enticing "on film," these experts show you how.

Step-by-step photographs show you exactly how to build your hero, from start to finish
Extended "photographer's comment" sections explain what works about the shot, and what steps were taken to get there
Handy shopping lists ensure that you'll have everything you need on hand to complete your assignments
