Texture is very important when taking pictures of food. Without texture the picture seems to be very plain and doesn’t give it a realistic look.Some of the best photographers add texture to there photos. In the picture below is mu breakfast and I added some extras on the plate to get some texture. I added the syrup and that is what really gives the picture some texture. It looks as if the syrup is 3D. The small detail I added with the strawberries overlapping each other also gives the picture some more texture. Placing a pineapple in the background gives the photo some dimension to it as well.
