Congrations to all the excellent food bloggers featured in Best-Shot Blogs in the August issue of Food and Wine. Their related story "Shoot First, Eat Later" included a tip from one of my favorite food photographers, Heidi of 101 Cookbooks. I was a little disappointed that the ideas in the article were so elementary (wiping the edges? yep, got that one already) so I was excited to find that Heidi also posted a few more technical and specific suggestions than those in the article. I've already sent it on to the food photographer in my house, though he's definitely already got spending more on equipment down. Hopefully we'll come up with something good enough to entire in the F&W Food Photo Contest. Happy shooting!
