Flashlight painting in the dark....Settings: in the dark, camera set to Bulb, ISO 200, 5.6. Focused in light, turned off the lights and shined the flashlight on the fruit for about 20 seconds. Clicked stop. Et voilà!

So, as you all know I'm heavily into photography right now- namely food. One of the sites I've been following said to try and take self-portraits once a week, which is hard to do. (I tethered my camera to my computer and put a 10-second delay, focused with my mouse and hoped for the best) I did a few today, keeping in mind a business idea I'm developing- which combines everything I know: art direction, graphic design, writing, cooking, book marketing, and soon...as I become better at it, photography. The name for the proposed idea is... you have to GUESS... #feedfeed #infatuation #EEEEEATS #foodphotography #nyceats #forkyeah #dailyfoodfeed #foodporn #foodblog #instadaily #yummy #foodbeast #foodstagram #eatingfortheinsta #foodbaby #foodie #eater #eatfamous #hypefeast #devourpower #foodgasm #forkyeah #eatfamous #buzfeedfood #foodbeast #selfie #france #books #authorsoninstagrams

Played around with flat lay photography- it's a bit blown out (I needed a diffuser in front of the window), but at least it's in focus! I call this lettuce in a bowl with tomatoes and lemon-- not exactly styled. :)

Just playing around with #food #photography

Playing around with dark food photography, using what I learned in @andrewscrivani 's Youtube Video. 50mm 1,8 lens, 4.5/ 1/125/ 400 ISO. There is no styling here- just clementines on a trivet placed on one of my DIY backdrops w/the same board. No reflectors/diffusers/natural light. #food #photography #foodbloggers #learning #darkfoodphotography #darkfoodphoto

So, this is my first attempt at carving vegetables (without the proper tools) and I was inspired in a creative way. They reminded me of water lilies-- so I went with that theme. These are cucumbers done two ways. Admittedly, it was fun making them. #foodporn #foodie #vegetarian #vegetableflowers #photography #food #havingfun #foodblogfeed #foodbloggers #seriouseats #learning #eating #living #loving #heresmyfood #eattheworld #cucumber #art #waterlilies

Dark photography test day two! This is a veggie tray bake with zucchini, garlic, carrots, shallots, leeks, red peppers, hot peppers, olive oil and spices. You wouldn't serve it in a small copper pot (unless you had a lot of them)--but I didn't have anything dark and so I'm using what I've got. Just a girl trying to improve her photography skills. (I can cook...come on over!) #foodblogfeed #foodbloggers #learning #photography #foodporn #foodphotography #vegetarian #vegan #seriouseats #heresmyfood #grubstreet #eattheworld
