Bottom Teeth & Toenail

My plan was to snap photos as I molded and closed.  However, I'm quickly learning that working with dough, meat, cheese, lighting, AND the camera will take some practice.

Meanwhile, I rolled these three different ways.  All were good.  Even the last one.  Next, I'll practice making and shooting food at the same time.  But not today.

Today, I've got a Babycakes machine with my name on it.  Not sure what's for supper yet.  But you can bet your bottom teeth and a toenail, supper will be shaped like a cupcake. 

Or a waffle stick.  Really, it could go either way.

    1. Everything hubby gets this week is either shaped like a cupcake or a waffle stick.

      So fun.

  3. You need special lighting and a tripod positioned - then all you have to do is place food and snap!

    1. Thanks, Alex. I'm talking more about the step-by-step photos of filling and rolling dough. More method, rather than finished product.

      Things get messy during the step-by-step shots. More practice should help, but once I do video, tripod is the what we'll use.

    1. Hey Jen - I did two kinds today. One was the same as the last one we ate, and then the second didn't work out as well. It was too eggy.

      Back to the lab ...

  10. Most photographed food is inedible. Professional photogs brush it with all kinds of yucky things to make it look shiny. That's what you're dong wrong--your food TASTES yummy. I can tell just from these pictures. I say snap and eat!

    1. Thanks, Stephanie. Yes, they do sometimes gloss the foods. For my stuff though, I was talking about method photos. As in how to fill and fold the dough, step-by-step shots.

      Hard to do when I'm covered in pastry. I'll need more practice, for sure.

  11. All three look very tasty.
    You just have to clean your hands, pick up the camera and shoot. You can use a tripod or learn to shoot one handed.
    Lighting is always a huge problem with me.

    cheers, parsnip
