Hi Everyone! I hope there has been some fun, exciting photo taking going on! :)
So in my last blog I talked about shooting in different angles and how it helps make the food look more interesting. In this blog, I will talk about how to make your shot more compositionally interesting.…
These cucumber appetizers are placed in a way that creates movement.
I cropped into the plate and part of the crepes, which allowed me to get a more detailed shot.
This cherry treat was shot with a foreground and a background as well as placed off to the left.
Originally from Idaho, I moved to Seattle to pursue a photography career. After meeting a few chefs-in-training I became inspired to photograph food. I got lucky after graduating from school and landed a job shooting food for various clients. Photography aside, I don't do a whole lot of cooking since I live by myself. I try to bake for my boyfriend whenever he visits me (he lives in Boise still) and he cooks for me during his visits. He's trying to learn to cook vegetarian and I must say he's doing well considering he's Italian. :) I would like to start cooking more so I don't keep eating packaged food and not to mention to shoot food more on my free time.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
The women in my family get together and make candy for Christmas. Unfortunately, I don't get to participate anymore since I live away from them.
My cooking triumphs
I guess anything that's not only pretty, but edible.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making pierogies for Thanksgiving dinner in '08 and I didn't get the dough flat enough so in the end they were mostly soggy dough balls with bits of cheddar and sauerkraut. My dad was nice enough to eat a few. The rest were thrown in the trash.
