Fame!


Radishes and Cheese

Oh, well, almost anyway. I've had some exciting blog-related things happening this week. The main one: I picked up the latest issue of the digital photography magazine Kamera & Bild only to find that they had published some of my food photos! I had sent in a couple of pictures to be judged by a professional food photographer (the very talented Matilda Lindeblad) and lo and behold: she chose three of them to be published! And, she also had some very kind and helpful comments. In general, she thought I should put more efforts into my Photoshop work. And I agree with her. That's really not my strong point.

What makes my food photography different from hers - hrm, well, one of the things at least - is that I put maybe five minutes, tops, into any given picture. Because after that, I eat it. She can spend hours perfecting a plating - it won't show if the food is cold. However, I can't really fiddle around too much with the actual picture taking. So that's a good reason to learn more about post-processing. Anyway. These are the three pictures that were published. (Click on them to see the recipes.)

Good for you! And I'm with you on the 5 minute idea. Max!

Good for you, Anne! My plating & photo-taking "process" takes about 5 minutes as well:) I like the caramels with sea salt photo most!

Congratulations. The photos are really nice, and I agree, about 5 minutes is all you want to spend if you're waiting to eat!

I'm with everyone on this point; at my house there is definitely a 5-minute-picture-taking food rule. I'm probably lucky if i make it that far!

The 5 miute constraint is an odd artifact of food blog photography. Perhaps events such as DMBLGIT should take account of this -- and apply demerits for any photo taken in a session lasting longer than 5 minutes.

Jättekul att dina porrbilder uppskattas!! :) Jag tycker de är superfina och förstår inte alls vad du ska behöva ändra men roligt att de har publicerats och att du fick bra kritik, grattis!! :)
