What makes a great picture? Is it the subject, the lighting, the styling, the composition? Well a great picture is all of these things.
Every once in awhile I’ll get a question about how I take my food pictures. I always feel that a comment reply or a tweet aren’t descriptive enough. Everyday I’m inspired by other food photographers and food bloggers and I am extremely humbled to hear, read and see that I’ve inspired others. I appreciate all the comments and support that I get from blog viewers. There is this quote from Maya Angelou that resounds in my head; she simply says,”When you get – give!” Basically this is my way of giving back, after all the support and acknowledgements that I’ve received from blog viewers, Twitter followers and Facebook comments.
I think you’ll love this colorful, pretty fruit salad, which is drizzled with a lovely orange-vanilla syrup, which glosses it up and makes it visually irresistible, which makes you want to stand over the bowl and slurp up every single bite, which won’t leave any for your brunch guests. So logic would probably tell you not not to make it. But I think you should go ahead and chance it! It’s that good.

Cake balls, cake pops, cakesicles — have you tried them? They swept the internet like a tidal wave over the last few years, thanks in part to the delightful and amazing creations of Bakerella and other creative cooks. We finally decided to try them, and while ours don't achieve the heights of more talented confectionery artists, they tasted pretty darn good! Cake pops are basically little smushed balls of cake and frosting (kind of like when you used to smash your birthday cake all in pieces, maybe with ice cream, and eat it as goop). You bake up a cake, let it cool, tear it into fine crumbs, stir in something to hold it all together, and roll it in balls. Easy!
Oh my gosh you guys. I cannot even begin to tell you how IN LOVE I am with these AMAZING pretzels!! Oh. My. Word. They’re soft, they’re chewy, they’re buttery .
It’s been a while since this incredible evening happened, but thanks to a few nudges from you guys, we reached back into our archives for the images. What would we do without you amazing people? You keep us in check and encourage us to post regularly. Thank you for that. You see, we were asked to photograph a private dinner party at Hotel Bel Air’s signature restaurant in Beverly Hills.
Food photography is a hot topic these days, as many cooks love to snap shots of their food for friends on Facebook and Twitter. Even if you don't keep a blog or photograph food as a hobby, you may want to share that birthday cake you made or the lasagna from last weekend. We are always trying to improve our skills here too, so we asked three professional food photographers to share their single biggest piece of advice for new food photographers. They also share their favorite piece of equipment (besides the camera) and their favorite kind of food to shoot!
It's been another busy week of work and travel…and I wish I had gotten this post up sooner. I didn't want to just throw something up and call it done. This was a very special event for me and the outcome of Atlanta's first ever Food Bloggers Bake Sale was quite remarkable. It was a gorgeous morning. Lots of folks came out to both help, visit and do some shopping. In the end, our little ol' bake sale raised over $1600 , all of which goes to Share Our Strength !
