Photography

“The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking.” – Brooks Atkinson

I use a Canon EOS Rebel T1i for the majority of my photos. My favorite lens is my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II.

I do admit freely to using my iPhone to take pictures when it’s not convenient to haul my SLR around. I also have a Sony DSC-H3 and a Sony DSC-W120 but use them less.

I edit my photographs in Photoshop on my PC as well as in iPhoto and Snapseed on my iPad.

    Have you tried Photo Editor? It’s very inexpensive and a whole bunch of fun.

    I’ve been wondering for a while now–do you light your kitchen projects in any special way? The color balance and shadow in your food shots are always just perfect and I can’t achieve anything close to it in my kitchen.

      Well first of all I use my fancy SLR camera for most food posts and I use all manual settings on there to adjust for lighting, etc. I think that really helps because it’s much more precise to work with. I also rely on photo editing software (Photoshop on my PC and a variety of programs on my iPad) to help adjust the color balance and white balance during the editing process. One other big blogging secret is that I will wait until the weekend and cook a whole bunch of recipes during the times where my kitchen gets the best light (11AM-4PM), so the pictures all look uniform and I start with great light so I don’t have to do a ton of editing. And then I space the posts out during the week even when I shot them all on the same day. So the finished product comes out much more polished with those things but it takes a lot of time and effort to do all that!
