    food photography, unlike other discipline, is a very specialised area of photography.

    not just any studio dealing with still life are good at food photography. they've got to know the food product, the characteristic and the culture too.

    here's an interesting article for u to refer to.

    tough to find courses in food photography here. perhaps, start with still-lifes as suggested earlier.

    Check out borders bookstore. They always have different cultural cook books on sale for like $10. It comes with many good pics on food photography, the way the dish is positioned, etc. Good reference books.

    A thing about food photography is... food dun necessary look the nicest when it's fully cooked. And a lot of things you see in food photography aren't really edible either. I've seen some tv shows where they put lacquer on roast meat just to get the gloss on the surface.

    lacquer? eww!

    but usually a thin film of oil or melted butter brushed over the meat will achieve the effect. use lighting to create highlights on the shiny parts.

    yes lacquers. most food stylists, once they are done "making up" the food, render the food inedibile.
