Think of a table centerpiece. It’s there as a main point of interest at the table. The same is true for food photography. Find a main point of interest—your photo’s centerpiece—and compose your photograph to draw the viewer’s eye to it. You can do this by sticking to the “Rule of Thirds”: Divide the photograph’s frame into a Tic-Tac-Toe design and place your subject at one of the intersecting points.
