Secret "Recipes" to Make An Engaging Food Video

Just like yummy foods have secret recipes, creating an engaging food video is no exception. In this part, we aim at those essential tips to work out a great food video.

1. Where to Shoot?

For cooking videos, dim videography always ruins the graphics quality. When we shoot videos indoor, lights become the issue.

Our advice for this case is to choose a video spot near a window with abundant natural light. Or, if you insist, you can also set up lights indoor.

2. Shoot Vertically, from High Top to The Board, Bowl or Pan.

Learn Tasty video tricks, shoot from top to bottom.

Abandon the standard way to record a cooking video. Instead, fix your camera or smartphone on the top where you cook, and video recording what's going on in the bottom.

This way, audiences see all the details in a flat view. It feels more like animated graphics.

3. Keep Your Camera Closer.

Want to show how tasty your food is? Try moving the device closer, or replacing with a longer focal length, then details are revealed.

4. How to Choose Plates?

There is a wisdom in choosing your plates for tasty videography or food photography. You may like to know that plates in white or black always perform better than others in rendering graphics and are ideal items.

Another thing, the simpler the plate is, the better experience viewers have. You'd better not use plates that have prints, since potentially those prints will get audiences attention away from your cooking.

5. Tricks of Table and Table Cloth.

Choose a good table. For example, a texture table will reflect how yummy foods are, or how fresh your food materials are. Besides, its wooden color will "rhyme" with food colors.

If you think your table isn't good enough for cooking videography, there is no need to buy a new one and replace the old. A table cloth will help you out.

6. Keep Your Frame Simple

Don't make your table look complicated or stuff with foods. It will ruin the beautify of food cooking and make your picture intricate.
