How to Style a Hotdog: Illustrated with a gif



I recently did a photo shoot for an upcoming hotdog restaurant. The hot dogs when through quite the process of transformations with lighting, positioning, and fixing condiments, which is illustrated in this gif.

Final Product!

After you get your shot, you have to edit. I always struggle with over editing. You want the food to look clean and professional, but still natural.

I am a freelance photographer and writer, working for various magazines, cookbooks and blogs. I love what I do, but I have a lot of restrictions depending on which brand and publication I'm working for. This blog gives me the opportunity to have fun. I'm also a pretty terrible cook, so this blog is forcing me to learn some kitchen skills, which is both thrilling and infuriating. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, half as much as I enjoy making it.

  1. The transformation of the hot dog is great, I am always so interested in how to get the right lighting for food. It’s really hard if you are not a professional photographer to find that sweet place. The hot dog looks really good.

    • Thanks!! I usually find side lit, with a reflector shining on the front gives nice concise/natural light. It is hard though to find sweet place, even as a professional photography. 😉 Your stuff is really lovely though. You should be proud of it.
