Photography 101: Overview

Photography 101: Overview

So many images, good eats, and many lessons learned along the way.

Since sharing my thoughts on finding inspiration from other photography last week, a bunch of you asked me to write a photography post.

Eak, me? I am by no means a professional, but I’ll try to share the lessons I’ve learned along the way, and hope you find it interesting!

Questions I ask myself while I’m preparing to take pictures of my food is:

For this salad, I chose to setup a pile of the veggies that were in the salad, layout the homemade dressing, cups of water and wayyy in the back there you can see some chickpeas + roasted sweet potatoes. The pan didn’t make it to the final cut, but I had them on backup just in case.
