First of all, I have learned (or have remembered) how much I enjoy writing. I totally forgot, in all the hustle and bustle of family life!
I have learned many techy-tricks that a computer misfit like myself, never thought possible.
I have learned that blogging is just as much about making friends as it is about sharing recipes!
And I've learned that no matter how great your recipes are, PEOPLE WILL NOT TRY THEM IF THE PICTURES ARE TERRIBLE!
I have to admit, I had very little photography experience before I started blogging. Mmm...actually none. I thought to myself, "This will be easy! I'll just cook dinner, snap a couple pictures and Voila!" Oh, had I only known!
The more I learn about photography the more I enjoy it. Please understand...I still know VERY LITTLE. I'm probably not the person you want to ask about technique and equipment. But just like anything else, practice makes perfect...or in my case practice makes better! I still have a rough photo shoot every few weeks, but I can look to the future and anticipate great things. Can't wait to see how my photos look this time next year!
Here are a few post links from the first couple months that I find quite comical. I promise you, they are GREAT recipes. But the photos are sad little snaps, with bad lighting and no thought of set up whatsoever! I hope you'll still take a look at them!
Thanks friends, for your support and patience!
