Confession time. When I decided to start a food blog one of the biggest challenges I realized I was facing (because of course there were several others that I realized much later, but I’ll tell you about those another time) was food photography, or rather just photography.
My only experience with taking photos was pushing the button on those very simple point and shoot cameras we took on vacation and using my phone’s basic camera. But those didn’t require any technical knowledge or artistic qualification. When I browsed other food bloggers’ photo posts and saw them talk about aperture, shutter speed and ISO I was blinking hard and feeling lost (and fending off a panic attack at the same time lol). I knew this was a grey (if not black) area for me so I decided I had to learn about these magic words like ISO if I wanted to take nice pictures for the blog and own my new DSLR camera.
I took a photography class, read up on the matter and bought some books specifically about food photography. One of these books was Tasty Food Photography by Lindsay Ostrom from Pinch of Yum, and I thought to give you a bit of a review in case you are interested in the matter and are wondering whether to get it or not.
The short answer is: YES! Get it now!…
