Tasty Food Photography Ebook Giveaway

Lindsay and Bjork from Pinch of Yum created an ebook called Tasty Food Photography.

It’s been such a hit that they expanded it and have recently relaunched it.

For anyone who needs help, guidance, advice, tutorials, practical, and real-life suggestions for improving your food photography, it’s such a great resource.

That’s pretty much everyone, right? Myself included.

I have a Photography page on my site, which includes what camera and lenses I use, my general approach to food photography, as well as links to resources, books, recommendations, and so forth.

Inside Tasty Food Photography, here’s what you’ll find:

There’s Technical Tips, like understanding your camera and what all those dials do, and what happens when you turn a dial a certain direction.

Suggestions about Composition

Real life Editing examples that help illustrate that white balance and brightness are not the same thing. Nor are exposure and brightness.

When I was first learning about photography, it all blurred together, and I wish I would have had an ebook like this to reference.

  10. Even though I’m getting better at it through experience, I really struggle with the photography aspect of blogging! I’m sure I could improve a lot if I took the time to understand more of the functions on my camera, but I really know so little about photography, I think I’d need to start with a class or a tutor (or a book!) for that.

    One of the most challenging parts is figuring out how to consistently get good, diffuse lighting without glares, dark or dull spots, or too-bright washed-out areas. I loved Lindsay’s post on the 10 household items you can use to improve your photography; I’m definitely going to try out some of her tips & suggestions!

  11. I struggle a lot with shot composition. How do I position the food? From what angle? Does it look appealing? After taking several shots, I usually have a ton of lighting issues.
