Hi there! I’m Tia.
I have been blogging and working on my food photography since 2009. I always thought my pictures were…ok. Good enough. Not too bad.
But they really never conveyed what I was seeing in real life. I just couldn’t figure out why. I would try to learn stuff online and watch others take pictures. But the information never really stuck with me.
You know how you can be told the same thing over and over again, in different ways, and it isn’t until you hear/see it the right way for you that you finally get it.
Well, this AMAZING eBook – Tasty Food Photography – from Lindsay at Pinch of Yum was that for me. That light bulb. In just over 40 pages I finally got it.
You can see the difference in my photographs below. The first set is my before and after Zucchini Muffins. That was just two weeks after reading her eBook – Tasty Food Photography and putting things into practice. I was still using my iPhone, not a DSLR. I hadn’t gotten any of my backdrops going yet, either. But the difference is amazing! To me, at least. Don’t you think?
And the second set (before and after Banana Muffins) is a month after reading her eBook – Tasty Food Photography and putting everything into practice. I did use a DSLR for these pictures. And I had my backdrops and surfaces going. (I will be posting how I made my own surfaces because it is really super simple and pretty inexpensive. But they look awesome.)
The more I practice using Lindsay’s advice, the better I get. Just took this picture of figs the other day, and I shocked even myself. I didn’t realize I could improve this much this fast with her advice and tips.
She not only helps you take better photographs, she helps you learn to edit them to really make them stand out. (In a good way.)
If you want to up your game in food photography, (or photography in general) click on the link to get this eBook – Tasty Food Photography. She gives you lots of examples of pages and information you will get in her eBook.
OH! Oh, oh, oh… I almost forgot. She also has video tutorials of how she does all of her editing in Photoshop and Lightroom. So you can follow along really easily.
So, again, if you want to take better photographs, get Tasty Food Photography from Lindsay at Pinch of Yum. It’s only $19 and oh-so worth it. Even the picture of my kids are looking better.
