how to photograph food (yummmmm)

It's hard to believe the holiday season is almost upon us. You know deep down in your heart that it's a little over the top that stores like Target have their Christmas displays already out, and it's not even Halloween yet. Come on, admit it. The other day when I was shopping at Target a blind guy - seriously, a blind guy - turned and said to me "Christmas stuff out already?" That's how bad it is at my local Target.

But man, do I love holiday food. I used to hate stuffing until a friend of mine gave me an outrageous recipe to make one Thanksgiving - now, I would eat an entire casserole dish full if I could. But when it comes time to document my cooking or the holiday meals we've enjoyed over the years, my photos are always kind of blah.

Bon Appetit!

Don't you just love her!?!

My mom makes fun of me to no end around the holidays when I'm cooking with a camera around my neck. What? That's not normal? Says who!?!
