Oi, Foodies!

I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while, but did you know I take food photos as well as pics of flowers and people? It’s been almost by accident, but I have been totally loving it. At work, we do a bunch of nutrition education (which I choose to ignore) and you need photos to go with that, right? So the job fell to me.

I *did* do a bunch of art direction for food photo shoots during my stint in Corporate America (a DECADE ago), and I learned a lot – but telling people what to do and actually doing it are two different things. Either way, it’s a blast. Mainly because the food just lays there, waiting for you to make it beautiful.

    Yummy! Beautiful food photos! I used to dabble in some food photography myself, but could never make it look as appetizing as the food did in person. These are amazing and appetizing!–I’m going to now get a breakfast burrito for lunch!!
