Finding food props and where to shop
This post is a little off the baking path, but don’t worry I have a post coming up tomorrow that is CRAZY. No, really crazy so don’t miss it. Until then, I’m going to share my other passion with you today: photography. I get a lot of questions about photography and where I find my props.
The photography part I don’t have much to offer, since I’m a beginner and only picked it up when I started my blog. Where you can find alot of that information is over at Gourmande in the Kitchen. Sylvie, a professional photographer, food blogger and recipe developer, has a wonderful four part series called, The Language of Food Photography that is written by a variety of industry professionals.
So while I can’t offer any technical advice, I am sharing something I have managed to do with some success: food propping. Yes, the fun part of hunting down those pieces—the details of a food shot. Since I don’t have time for live “propping”, I do most of it online. With that, I thought I would save you some time by sharing a few tricks I’ve picked up along the way over on my good friend, Sylvie Shiraz’s blog. If you haven’t been there, leave yourself time to look around. Trust me once you are there, you’ll know why she is one of my top ten favorite food photographers and food bloggers—and why I’m excited to be her guest blogger today. Hit the jump here.
