I'll get down to food photography tips and tricks, but first let me rattle on about why I have to think so hard about this subject, if you will. I'm not exactly poor and lazy (maybe a little of each) but I surely don't have a lot of money or time to burn. Or space, for that matter. I live in a small house so my "studio" is a little corner of the basement between the camping gear and the litter boxes. Another little hindrance of mine is location. For much of a Duluth winter, the sun shines only after I leave for work and sets before I get home. Shooting in natural light isn't always an option for me. On top of all of this, I have a pretty fierce streak of perfectionism that keeps me from letting things be. A very good example being my participation in the Daring Bakers club. I started a "low-key" blog with the intent of it being specifically for posting my DB challenge results and I didn't even own a camera.
