Some EASY Tips for Taking Better Food Photos!

I was doing a browse last week for tips on taking food photos with a DSLR camera.

I have a new camera I’m just learning to use right now. And food photos are something that are definitely on my list for getting more proficient and comfortable with.

I found this helpful and easy to understand tutorial re: food photography over at the Pioneer Woman site.

This is not for the pros out there. 😉

This is for the rest of us who want to get the most from our digital cameras without the steep learning curve it takes to be an expert.

And with the technology and software getting better all the time, we should all be able to take good-excellent photographs, on a consistent basis.

As far as food photography:

I see a LOT of food photos on blogs and websites. Some of them are so beautiful….all the way to “how could they post THAT” awful.

If food doesn’t look appetizing and isn’t presented and photographed in a pleasing way, why bother to post the photo? 😦

I hope you find this tutorial helpful too.

And if you have any tips that have worked for you with your own food photos, DO SHARE! 🙂


10 Fav. Food Photos, plus…..

As one of my numerous new year’s projects, I’ve been trying to sort through and tidy up my many, many…. files, emails and photos online.

Thought it might be fun to pick out my 10 fav. food photos (from the ones I’ve personally taken of my own recipes, since I started blogging) and turn it into a post.

So, here are the tasty results. I’ve included links to each of the recipes too, in case a particular photo or two inspires you to head to the kitchen! Do let me know if that’s the case.

A big thanks to Jade over at Applejade for helping me figure out the photo imprint ???’s  I had fun playing with the Microsoft’s ‘bucket of paint’ yesterday too, LOL!

 Happy cooking and wishing you all an abundant week!    🙂
