Who can contribute to this? Anyone in the CSUMB campus community -- students, faculty, staff.

Tips For taking photographs of your food:

  • Use Natural light (near a window with natural light is a great option)
    • If you don’t have natural light make sure to use bright light, but watch out for shadows
  • Use a white plate or bowl if you have it to really make your food pop off the plate.
  • If you take a photograph of your food with a smartphone it will meet the minimum resolution requirements, but make sure you do not resize it.
