Introducing Nicole of Life's a Beach
shared on instagram that night (Boomerbear)
Wow, this hit a spot with me. Now... I am absolutely no pro (although I'd love to be) but one of my favorite things to do is to photograph my food at restaurants number 1 and secondly a lot of times I will write a review on my thoughts about that particular restaurant if I haven't written one previously. Honestly, that's great publicity for your restaurant in my opinion. Free advertising, because you're not paying me anything (yet, call me... lol). The first review I wrote was last June for a Cajun style restaurant in my area. I wrote the review, posted it on their facebook site and they loved it. In fact, the next time I went in and from there on out the owner has remembered me.
food bloggers and blogging in general. At the top of the hour they always address current topics and they just so hit on this very topic. I've included the video.
I absolutely LOVE what Mario Batali says!! I can tell you when I take my photos, that I don't use my flash. Flash generally tends to make your food not look that appealing... This isn't the best example, but you will notice that the flash is on because I forgot the camera I was using automatically puts it on unless you turn it off (a point and shoot). I had just received this camera for Christmas so I was learning the tips and tricks of using it.
used the flash, over the restaurant lighting because my photos turned out funny looking in my opinion, but at the same time, I try to be courteous to other patrons and not set my flash off.
What are your thoughts on all of this?
Thank you again Nicole! I know I rarely get good food pictures as I just want to eat it!
