There's a distinct pleasure in visually capturing a subject that communicates primarily through smell and taste-and I'm certainly not the only one whose search for perfect ingredients is matched by a pursuit for the perfect angle. I was a wannabe photographer before I ever knew how to cook, and taking pictures in the kitchen has been an important means of honing both my culinary and artistic skills. However, it sometimes happens that I go to photograph a plate and come up with nothing worth sharing. For those times, I'm happy to be able to turn to 1,000 Food Art and Styling Ideas, an exhaustive resource of visual inspiration for the amateur and professional photographer alike. It contains no text save a brief introduction, so the focus, page after page, is on the unique presentation of a thousand colorful, gorgeous dishes. If I'm ever looking for ideas on how to plate and capture seafood, I'll flip to the book's "Sea" chapter; for visual storytelling, I'll turn to "Narrative"; and for the perfect way to style a big batch of cookies I'll leaf through "Multiples." One thing's certain: My Instagram account is about to get a serious upgrade. -Zoe Schaeffer, saveur.com
