If you’re a food blogger, restaurant blogger, cookbook blogger, chef blogger, or something related, and you’re not a professional photographer, then I’m looking for you! I’m preparing a seminar I’m teaching at the annual IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) meeting in Denver this spring (http://www.iacp.com/), and we’ll be talking about how to make better food photographs for your blog.
I’d love to hear from you about your process. What was the hardest thing when you first began doing photos for your blog? How did you figure it out? What kind of equipment do you use? Do you use natural light or photo lighting? What kind of image works best for your blog? Do you think a photo can be too polished and lose credibility? What has your blog done for you or your business? How does your blog relate to your website … or, IS it your main site?
Cheers – and happy blogging! Maybe I’ll see you in Denver.
