I really want to be shooting more this year and this is the start! It’s the beginning of updating my portfolio and working toward a few different things. For one, I’ve begun to learn a bit more about food styling. I’ve observed little tricks and quick things that food stylists do on shoots, but in the last few weeks I was able to actually assist some one which was great. For my food photography, styling is very important. I think I have a good eye and taste for what looks right, and to be able to do some basic styling on my own will be a great thing for me to have when I’m working on my own (and on a small budget).
Now that I have a little more free time, I’m going to use it wisely. I’ve set a bunch of goals for this year and hope to complete them. Yesterday I chose a soup to try to make and photograph and I think the result was pretty decent, and tasty!
I got the recipe out of one of my favorite cook books: Power Foods from the editors of Whole Living Magazine. It’s all very healthy but delicious!
Hope you enjoy the photos!
