Yellow Pear Tomato Test Shoot



After waiting for four months I am happy to see that the tomatoes are taking over the garden! So this morning I picked a bunch of beautiful yellow pear tomatoes. I wanted to test some new ideas I had for food photography so I decided to take some pictures using some new backgrounds, dishes and different angles. I have a nice, bright window in my kitchen so I use natural light, no flash necessary and I am using my digital Canon Elph for the pictures. I think they turned out pretty good!







A few websites with great information on food photography and beautiful pictures for inspiration:

Baby Shower Luncheon

Last weekend we had a small baby shower luncheon for a good friend. With the weather being so hot I couldn't imagine cooking in a hot kitchen so I decided that Chinese Chicken Salad, Lettuce Wraps and Watermelon would be the perfect lunch--and it was!
