Food Styling: Beer



Before a good-looking photo of food is taken, there is an appetizing plate of food—or in this case, a tall glass of beer—beckoning to be eaten or drunk. Food styling showcases the food in the best light, engaging viewers and whetting appetites. Food styling is an important part of the intricate photoshoot process where food is the star.

Some people tend to think that taking photos of food don’t require extensive preparation and styling. In reality, you can expect a team of people behind every curated setup. Usually, you will find a photographer, a prop stylist, and a food stylist working together to get the best possible shot.

If you’ve ever imagined yourself as a food stylist, this module can be the first step to your styling dreams. Since food styling is an extensive field that can cover several approaches towards making the most attractive plate of food or drink, we’re dividing food styling into separate in-depth modules to cover our lessons comprehensively.

This module focuses on mastering the food styling components of beer. In this module, you’ll learn about easy and practical ways to preparing your beer vessel, adding condensation droplets to the glass, creating foam, and maintaining fizz. All of these are integral to styling beers and similar drinks in food media.

By the end of this class, you will be able to confidently style your own beers for photoshoots, and will be a step closer mastering the art of food styling.
