    I wish I could help you. I’ve done some good food shots and some not so good food shots. More on the latter side so when I post about food or even crafty stuff it tends to be sans photo.

    The good food shots have been with my SLR camera where I can play with the settings, aperture and use filters. Though I’ve had luck with my digital camera it’s been hit or miss.

    I just did a food blog entry with photos. Very boring photos compared to that one!

    I think a lot of food bloggers use light boxes to get the lighting just right. You can make one yourself and have it counter-top sized. Have a google and see. There are several DIY light box builds to try. You can then take pictures just like the pros.

    Here’s the link I used when I built one. (Took me a while to dig it out, sorry)

    Early morning window light. I think it is the best thing ever for food photography.

    *sigh* I was afraid of that. If only I didn’t have a job that insisted I be working in the morning, instead of photographing and cooking. Hmph 😉

    Angie, natural light, no flash, sometimes(mostly tripod) should ensure better results..
    Just turning flash off would be a big wow

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
