Photo by Carl Kleiner Tips for Food Photography Made Really Simple

Think of cookbook photography – you know, the kind that teases you with perfectly executed dishes, styled and fussed over like the culinary equivalent of super model. We’ve all seen it a million times over. Don’t get us wrong. We love a great food shot. But when someone reinvents something, pretty much up-ends the whole “this is how you shoot a cookbook” thing, well, that has us salivating.

Enter Carl Kleiner and his photographs for the new Ikea cookbook. Spare, simple, and graphic, Kleiner’s photographs break down the recipe ingredients into artful collages. Great idea, terrific execution. We ran into these photos on Petapixel and they report that the cookbook is free but available only in Sweden. That’s good news for our Scandinavian Blurbarians. As for the rest of us, at least we can still enjoy these delicious photos.

  1. What a great idea and just look how wonderful in photographs. I am in the beginning stages of “publishing” my first cookbook with Blurb and wish I have thought of something like this.

  3. Great concept! for now I just stick with the traditional photo’s though, although I eat all the food in my photo’s and don’t use artificial and chemical substances to make the food look better.
