After reading her book and following her advice my photographs have been accepted on foodgawker, which was a goal of mine!
Great read and beautiful photos! The book is a perfect accompaniment to her blog and its full of fresh information.
UPDATE: After doing more food photography for local clients, I realized the importance of shooting in both landscape AND portrait format. Nearly every photo in the book is a vertical shot, making it much less useful for a client to use on a website or on social media.
Why the author never shoots horizontally is a mystery.
Finally, I think it's ridiculous that she doesn't tell the reader what shutter speed she uses! This is especially important to know for the action shots (pouring syrup, etc.).
It will help you become an artist.
Ms. Helene Dujardin'ss writing is clear and informative. Her emphasis
is not on technique but in developing your eye and growing as an artist.
It is written in a personal voice and she would love you to experiment and
have fun and see if this is a career for you.
I highly recommend it.
