So I took this incredible food photography course with my pals Kelly and Brianna, taught by the incredibly talented Beth Dunham.
I enjoy the heck out of taking pictures of the food I make for you all to drool over, and this course really helped me to take my photos to the next level. So, ever since, I’ve been acquiring some extra gear (a new lens and a tripod), painting backdrops, and creating a little photography space in my basement.
It’s been fabulous.
I got to take photos like this:
and this….you know, just to see if the strawberries looked better than the raspberries…
…and then we learned how to tell a story with our food photographs, and we decided to pretend we were in Italy….
and I messed around with my new lens a little…
It was so fun, and I learned so much, and I fell in love with my 50mm lens. What was I doing without one up till now?
I’m not sure.
At any rate, all is right with the world, and I am having so. much. fun. with my face stuck behind my camera.

gasp, your italy story pictures are lovely!! do you do any post processing?
Thank-you! No, I actually don’t! All my food bloggy nerd friends are telling me I have to start doing some post-processing but my old computer won’t support the software I want. So, until then, I shall wait, and pray for natural light, whites that look white, and forks that don’t reflect my camera-hidden face.
give http://www.picmonkey.com a try. you don’t have to download any software. i have lightroom but because of this site i have not learned the LR software my beloved purchased for me. good luck!
Ooooh……thank you! I am definitely going to look into this. I appreciate the tip!
Oh. My. God. Tip of the year. I just played around in picmonkey and….THANK YOU! It’s awesome!
