This weekend I spent a lot of time in the kitchen. Thought I would make the most of it by keeping my camera handy! Lately I have been reading a lot of food blogs about photography; hoping to step up my game. I am happy to say I am proud of my work so far this weekend! So far… because I am hoping I will have time to do more!
When I woke up this morning I knew the lighting was right in my kitchen (natural from the windows)– I’ve always had a sense about lighting and photographs. What stumped me in the past was how to take full advantage of this lighting when inside a building. I had found that sometimes the way the food lays on the counter is not the most favourable location. After reading some food blogs I have learned that it is okay to move the food! I was given ideas such as take the food to another room, put it directly in front of the window, etc. This is exactly what I did for some shots.
Thinking ahead, I was also trying to take shots that would lead to nice looking pins. (More about playing with pins in a future post). I took some photos that I wouldn’t usually take. For example, I took a shot of the recipe book I was using.
I look forward to sharing more about my food prep this weekend; hope you enjoy reading!
As always, my ultimate goal is to raise money for charity. Please see my events page to see which charity we’re raising money for this month.
