I thought it would be fun to take a look at my food photos from a year ago and see the differences in then, and now. Photography has always been a passion of mine but food photography is quite a challenge for me. I don’t really like to gussy up photos much and I’m not at all about decorating the setting for the dish so I needed a style of photographing my meals. I chose the more close up look I guess, trying to focus only on the main food item and not really anything around it, and taking the photo at eye level.
I have to say, I clearly didn’t know anything about my camera or how to take food photos so I owe Jaden from Steamy Kitchen a big ol’ thank you for her tips in helping me improve my photos. Thank you so much Jaden! MWAH!
By the way, her number one tip is LIGHTING! MUST.HAVE.IT.
I still have soooo much to learn which is why I like reflecting on the past. It makes me realize how far I’ve come and appreciate what I’ve learned so much more.
Clearly these are before pics. Ummmm, yeah……..do I really need to say anything?
Now let’s see where I am in my food photo taking skills a year later!
