So I was hoping that slowly but surely my photo’s were starting to improve. I think I let the stress of over complicating everything take over again! I am playing with picmonkey and playing with backgrounds and composition and the such, and hopefully one day, one day….. Food Gawker will accept one of my photo’s!! At least for now I know that at least my recipes are good and that the food is great! I am getting very close to my one year anniversary and I look at my earlier photo’s and I think that sometimes I really like them better. I had no idea what I was doing back then I had never heard of picnik or picmonkey, food gawker, taste spotting. I just cooked the food, placed it on my kitchen table and took a photo. And other than it only being about 2″ square….. they really were not that half bad. It was an honest photo of an honest meal. I am so stressed out over staging and props, and lighting that my photo’s look like crap now.
Like in this photo I was so concerned in getting the cool chared look of my tortilla that you can not even see the salsa that I made!!! Are you kidding me! The Salsa was the best part of the recipe!!!! I promise that I am going to figure this out!!! I have a few photo’s already taken for the next few posts and they too are a work in progress…….. but I am getting the kinks worked out and I am ready to take this problem head on! Food blogging is about th food! And I am ready to get back to basics and make the photo’s about the food again! Untill then I hope that you will enjoy these Taco’s!! These were so good and so fresh and bright and flavorful that I will be making them again and again all summer long!
