I admit it, I hate taking pictures of food for this blog, so I avoid it at all cost. All I have is 2 point and shoot 35 mm digital cameras, and I noticed that I hate the way they take pics of what I make. My food looks lots better than my pictures. I used to joke with a friend about a local guy's food blog - his pictures look like the kind of food you might make for a Halloween party, and put it in a medicine jar labeled "Brains" or "Guts". The fact is - mine doesn't look much better. I once knew a food blogger thant spent more time and used more equipment staging her food photos than I spent on my wedding photos! I'd really rather spend my time cooking, thanks! But great pictures would certainly enhance my blog.
However, recently I found these tips on NYT that I think might help me. For one thing, natural light is alwasy better....another issue is that shots with a point and shoot camera in limited light often come out blurry. I found both of these things out by trial and errror. Looks like I need to move my food picture taking outside all the time. I can't wait to try some of these ideas out.
