January 16 (16/365)


Today I tried my hand at food photography. I love food, so why not get good at taking photos of it? Makes perfect sense.

Charles made his specialty tonight for dinner, “Pepper Steak.” It’s not the pepper steak you might think of with a thick filet and a peppercorn sauce (also yummy!), but more a delicious blend of slow simmered beef, peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Delicious!

I can only hope that this photo does the meal justice.  It really is absolutely beautiful and delicious in person.

  1. Love your attempt at food photography! It is something I love too and have spent a bit of time working on when I was food blogging (http://chewymorsels.blogspot.com/). One suggestion: when you photograph food, especially meat dishes and such that don’t have that ‘cute’ aspect that bakery items do, try to take them in bright natural light. (Even for those natural light is best.) For some reason, it really helps the colors — and thus, the deliciousness of the food — pop! 🙂
    I know you don’t always have that choice, like if you’re making food at night. In that case, try to find a light that is as close to natural light-colored as possible and adjust for white balance (maybe overexposing a bit) when you are in post-processing.

  2. Thanks for stopping by! Thanks for your suggestions, it was dark out so I took this photo in the dining room, probably not the most natural looking light. I liked trying to take a photo of food though, I think I’ll keep working on it.
