When I began blogging about food, I thought I was going to recall memories, be opinionated where food should come from and, hopefully, write a few decent recipes down along the way.
I was not at all planning on enjoying the outcome of my photos rather than my dishes. Don’t get me wrong, everything I shot, I made and usually ate or fed to company shortly there after. Recipes still had to work well and be tasty but I found myself stirring in the key ingredients imagining how I might style the finished plate of food.
Food is meant to look good. It’s natural for it to be appealing for us in order to know when things are most ripe and at their tastiest, so why not photograph it from a great angle with a matching napkin?
