One thing I’ve noticed since launching this food blog and taking daily food pics is that it’s possible to take artful shots of the most mundane meals. Honestly I never thought I would be eating oatmeal daily; much less making it the subject of my photography! But here we are. I’m constantly amazed at the way light reflects and shadows contrast and the colors that come from berries, nuts and seeds.
In 2006, I decided to become a better photographer. As I was big into the Flickr community, I got involved in some daily photography projects. Taking a photo every day became addictive. What better way to get good at something? Practice it every day. Over the years, I’ve completed many 365 self-portrait projects, a couple of books of our kids, The Daily Show with Patrick and Everyday Princess, The Daily BMW and my current project 365 Days of Belle the Cat. And then there’s this daily food thing…well almost daily. I end up taking most of the daily shots with my iPhone and posting to Instagram and I try to only keep the studio shots for the blog.
Anyway, I’m rambling and I’ve eaten that whole bowl of oatmeal! Have a great vegan day.
