The good part is that these skills are forcing me to slow down a bit and focus on food styling. Although I freelance as a food stylist, when it comes to this blog I’m often in such a hurry to eat the food (after all, it’s usually my dinner) that I rush through the styling, forgetting one of the very first lessons I learned in culinary school: you eat with your eyes first.
Luckily, Helen from the scrumptiously gorgeous blog Tartelette came to my rescue and directed me to two posts she’s written about food photography: Tips of Food Photography and Snapshot Spotlight with Helen. She also told me about Culinary Snapshot, a fantastic interactive blog from Kristen (Dine & Dish) where food bloggers can share food photography knowledge. Helen, thank you so much for sharing these links with me, they were incredibly helpful and I encourage everyone to take a look themselves.
As for me, I think it’s time to focus and practice. Ha, get it? Focus. Puns aside, I’m excited to enhance this aspect of the blog, learn new skills and put existing food styling tricks to action. Please feel free to share any tips or tricks you think I should try.
