My name is Stephanie Ann. I didn’t start out my career as a photographer. I’m a writer and blogger who happened to take photos. I started out with a blog and was so upset when my recipe photos looked nothing like what I was seeing on Pinterest. I was distraught. I wanted to share my recipes with my readers but didn’t want to show them photos that looked like I emptied my garbage disposal onto a plate.
Then I heard about food styling. That MUST be the solution. I should learn how to style my food and it would look better. Sure I learned how to make my food look pretty for the photos, but the styling I learned, which is frequently used on TV and in magazines, looks fantastic. It also makes the food poisonous. I just wanted to photograph my dinner, I didn’t want to spend an exorbitant amount of time prepping my food for its close up.
Then I discovered photography and even had a photographer train me. It opened up a world of possibilities. Now, I’m still learning. But my photos are much better than when I started out. I am now IN LOVE with photography. I want to create a place where people like me, bloggers and food enthusiasts can get together and exchange tips tricks and recipes. There are plenty of resources for the pros, I’d like to see stuff for regular people like me.
As such, I love hearing from my readers and do accept guest posts. Do you have a tip or trick you’d like to share with everyone? Send me an e-mail!
