3. I'm no photographer
If pretty pictures are what you want, you’ve come to the wrong place. My sister is the photographer in the family. She takes photos like this.
These are tomatoes from the organic garden she tends on a picturesque crater in Maui. With a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. Bitch. Notice how delicious they look. Makes you want to bite right into them, seeds and all, right?
My pictures don’t look like this. They are worth negative 1000 words.
Photos posted to my site will be poorly lit and pathetically composed. That is, if you get a picture at all. Use your imagination. Other more artistic and articulate food blogs will be referenced early and often. Until they block me, in which case I may be forced to snap a photo or two so it doesn’t look like I’m totally phoning it in. When I do, take comfort in the fact that for every one of my original photos on display, there are about 45 more just as bad or worse that I didn’t post. And we can all be thankful for that.
