I really admire food photographers and/or food bloggers. I follow quite a few who not only create amazing meals from scratch but they also take really excellent pictures of the final product. It would really be a daunting task for me to mimic their efforts because my food creation talents are next to zero. And, honestly, it seems like a lot of work.
I am more of a food "assembler". I didn't make lunch today, I assembled it from leftovers. Refried beans, quinoa, roast beef, asiago cheese and Frank's Red Hot. I just happened to have some lighting equipment set up as part of another shoot so I took a few shots of my proud creation.
It was neither gourmet fair nor an amazing food shot but it sure was yummy!
