I started this blog just to have somewhere to put all of my dinners i made. Now its bigger than i would ever hope! I've came a long way. I didn't start cooking till i was 21 when we got a house in Cape Coral FL. before that i would help my mom out and watch her in the kitchen. whenever i have a cooking or baking question i always call her. she taught me a bunch of baking techniques. she is also self taught and married young like i did.
i am complete self taught. i took a class in high school but i was so horrible and i don't remember anything from it. when i started the blog i was using a point and shoot Nikon cool pix my parents gave me i used that up until this year actually my photos were horrible i didn't even think about using natural light and using props. I've only had my canon EOS rebel XT for 4 months now. i have read a lot of literature on food photography and taught myself how to use the camera on manual. now you can see me on foodgawker and tastespotter. i still have much more to learn and developing my technique. right now i have a little set up in my husband's army room in front of the window with a TV dinner tray i got at Walmart with a white trifold poster board behind it. the lens i use is the one it comes with i will be getting a macro one soon. i also use always use a tripod with a clicker. to edit my photos i don't use any fancy photoshop i just use iPhoto its so easy! i didn't want to spend any money on photo editing if i don't even know how to use it lol.
