Love the link about photographing ugly food. Very helpful! I am the master of ugly food and have been known to post a blank photo to protect readers from the unsightly, albeit tasty, dish.

That was a delightful post from Tangled Noodle. Thanks for that one.

Daniel said...

Me too Charmian. And I'm even worse: the photos here are proof that I can make nearly even attractive foods look ugly.

Melissa, yep I thought so too: it was a really good post that was sort of hard to describe and explain. So I took the easy way out and just re-used her title. ;)

Interesting links as always! I'm always looking for more tips on food photography. I'm just starting out and don't feel very confident about my pictures (thus the lack of them on my blog).

Thanks so much for the link to my carrot recipe! I'm happy your liked it.
