Photography poll


10 Dec Photography poll


Last year one of my resolutions was to add photos to the blog. I blithely promised quantity not quality. This year, I’m hoping to address both.

Frustrated by the limitations of my current camera, I’m upgrading soon to an SLR and am working on improving various aspects of my photography. No more flash-induced shadows. No more jaundice-yellow lighting. And honestly, there must be more than one way to photograph soup.

Since you’ll be subjected to my artistic offerings, I’m interested in knowing what sort of pictures interest you. So, vote in the poll and I’ll do my best to accommodate your wishes. I’ve enabled the poll to accept multiple answers, so you can click as many options as you like.

If you’re a fan of a particular food photographer, feel free to drop a link in the comments box. I’m always looking for inspiration.

In the meantime, I’m off to bake Christmas cookies.

    I'm so glad your poll allowed me to pick two choices. I do come for the words, but if you offer salacious food porn I may check in at night as well as in the morning.

    As you know, I recently got a new camera, too, and just found out there's a Digital SLR & Photography Book for Dummies by David Busch. I just got it from the library and plan to look at it once I get my head out of the batter bowl.

    My favorite food photographer right now is Paulette Phlipot (

    Hi Char,

    I’ve heard good things about this food and photography course that is offered online. I can’t find the link but I’m going to hook you up via email with my friend who enjoyed the course.

    My artist friend is a food stylist! Check out some soup shots in their pdf brochure: pages 5, 7, 9 and 13.

    I enjoy two Canadian artists: Freeman Patterson; Stephen Patterson. Not food photographers, but their styles are very inspiring.

    I like La Tartine Gourmande–she is an inspiration when I’m setting up a shot..

    Cheryl, thanks for the book tip and the great link. Love Paulette’s work.

    Lori, I had to drop by and was very impressed with Lara’s shots.

    Dana, you’re a peach! I’ll definitely check into the link you sent me once I have my SLR under control.

    Anonymous, I will start using ladles and spoons! My photos lack cutlery.

    Babette, I’ve got one word for you. Droooooooool!!!

    Thanks to everyone and keep ’em coming!
