The Art of Food Photography

You can make the most delectable, delicious dish and have it look like DOG FOOD in a photo. This is why there are professional food photographers, and then the rest of us.

Throughout this blog, you’ll see plenty of examples of my food photos. Since I am not a pro, I can’t afford the equipment, and I can’t afford to hire a pro, you’ve been stuck with the best that I can do. I admit it, one or 2 of them actually have looked a little like food for a canine…  but some have been pretty darned good, if I say so myself!

With the advent of Instagram and online photo sites, it’s a lot easier these days to share our photos. Despite my many shortcomings in this area, I started up a SmugMug account to document some of the favorite pix, including food shots.

I invite you to explore them and enjoy them: the food album is at but you should feel free to browse through the rest, which includes trips to Tuscany and experiments with camera creativity.

I hope that YOU are not held back by feelings of photographic inadequacy! Truth is, I think that some of these “pro” photos stink!  So get out there and show your passions. Trust me, it feels great 😉
