One of the most important aspects of being a food bloggers is taking good photographs. Yummy Pics: A Food Blogger’s Guide to Better Photos is an eBook that will help improve your photography. It will guide you in understanding photography basics and making your camera work for you.
The tips, techniques, and technical information in Yummy Pic’s pages are what I use everyday. It is not aimed at telling you this is exactly how you should shoot, or that it is the only way of doing things. I guide you through different options with a focus on developing your own style. So that you can tell your recipe’s story with your photographs.
The information in Yummy Pics is basic, simple techinques to take your food pictures to the next level. It will help you understand camera functions, achieve proper color balance, pick up some new tips on composition and styling, help prevent photo theft, and improve the overall look of your photography. Whether your goal is to be accepted on food sharing websites or just improve your pictures, this eBook is for you.
There are twelve chapters with information on camera types, what different modes mean, image information, white balance, exposure, aperture, depth of field, shutter speed, exposure value, metering, light, lighting techniques, light direction, basics of composition, subject placement, shooting angles, adding interesting elements to your photos, styling, styling tools and tricks, tips on styling different foods, putting all the elements together, a walkthrough of my shooting, photo editing software information, basic photo editing, and preparing your images for the web, just to mention a few things covered.
The eBook isn’t only designed for DSLR users. I have many tips for compact camera and prosumer users. (But be aware that compact cameras don’t give much control over the technical settings.) Among the 115 pages you will find many tips to help make your camera work for you. I also included many tips on creative use of different camera settings. The sections on White Balance, Image Sizing, Compositions, Styling, Photo Editing and Lighting apply to all types of cameras. There are many, many samples and illustrations explaining the information.
