How to take the best photos of your food (according to an expert)

So you're a fan of the occasional #food post, eh?

Good man. We too appreciate an artfully shot gourmet fish finger sandwich. Just last week we gathered around a screen to salivate over a particularly attractive cheesy roast potato.

Yet try as we might, our own food snaps are never quite as saliva-inducing as those of the pros. Imagine our delight then when we were invited to attend a food photography masterclass to celebrate the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards.

Overseen by king of capturing the culinary Hugh Johnson, and armed with a Sony α7R II camera, we picked up some skills that you can still employ on your smartphone for taking the perfect picture of your dish of choice.

Just don't hashtag it to buggery, okay guys?
