The basic idea of storytelling in food photography is to create an emotional bond somehow between the image and the viewer. You can easily do this by adding irrational value in putting some details to your food images. It can be a specific mood or some specific prop. This will – in a perfect world – evoke or recall some memories of your viewer and put them in the right emotional state to binding with your images and the shown food. If you reach such a level you nailed it.
