The other day I had a nice meeting with local photographer Walter Schnecker about taking profressional pictures of my candy. He was very helpful and gave great insight about doing food photography. Not sure when, but I think I'll probably take the leap soon.
One thing he made me realize is that to take proper photographs, I actually have to come prepared with lots of food. I hadn't really thought about that. I mean, in the process of taking pictures, the food has to be manipulated and if the chocolate starts to look, um, beaten up, then we need different pieces. So I can't just show up with one plate of peanut butter cups, I actually might need three or four plates, ugh!
But lucky for me, good food photography is a knack for my step-mother Julie Riven Jaye. So I'm so grateful that she'll be involved and giving her eye to the whole experience.
