Food photography is an exciting offshoot of the still-life genre, where you can really take your time and be a perfectionist with all of the various elements around the frame: from product placement to the position of the sun or your flash. It's not uncommon for tweezers to be used to carefully position a garnish or detail around the frame for total precision. The best news is, once you've wrapped taking pictures you can tuck into some tasty treats!

We recently caught up with professional food photographer Monika Grudzinska, who has perfected her style over many years and now takes the food and product photography for some of Poland's largest brands.
