Food photography is challenging because food touches so many emotions. I’ve been steadily improving my technique, and here I show a light stand I built to aid in taking better pictures.

All images were taken with a Nikon Coolpix L4 (in fact, the same camera we gave away in a previous contest here). The Nikon is a low to medium range digital camera and can probably be found for around $100. I choose to use it to demonstrate the quality of pictures possible with an affordable camera using my setup.

Undoubtedly, the pictures could have been better through the use of different equipment, different lights, or a more experienced photographer — consider this an introduction for you to improve on.
