Welcome everybody to the first linkup of the Food Photo Challenge. This monthly challenge is to work on doing some food photography photos with blogging.
If you are new to seeing this and it’s something that might interest you, the whole aspect is explained in this post. Also, the linkup will stay live for about a week, so if you post in the next couple of days, come on back and link up!
Simply put, though, each month there will be a theme (announced at the end of this post) and on the 28th of each month, come back and link up.
So, on with the show!
I’ve wanted to get better with my food photos. I enjoy it, but I also want to try new things and angles and all that. I always take snaps when out and about, but I want to learn about the editing and everything else. This month, I already learned a lot, which I will explain later. The best part of this is that each theme will be a new way to challenge yourself with food photography.
Further, I’m starting to really push toward using my iPhone for a lot of my photography. I invested in some Moment lenses and, so far, I really love them. For this month’s theme, I used the moment 58 lens, as well as the Moment app on my phone. I have a lot to learn with that app, but so far… love it.
On top of that, I opted to go with a mini light box, which, in the end, was probably good. However, I learned a bit about the light box and the lighting of it, and in the future, hopefully I can utilize this better. The light box is pretty small, so I might have to use a bigger one for this challenge.
For now, though, let’s get on with this month’s post.
I love breakfast. I mean, truly love it. I have certain things I always get when traveling, but when home, I’m quite consistent on the things I eat.
A lot of that is because of having diabetes and knowing what things do to me etc. I’ve had to cut back on a lot of things I love for breakfast, though I do still indulge in things on occasion.
Still, a plate with eggs or something along those lines didn’t work for me with this one. Instead, I wanted to do cereal. Espcially being I had some fruit loops around.
Now, I don’t eat a lot of cereal anymore. With the carbs and the milk and everything else, it tends to be too much for me in the morning and my blood sugars go up a bit too high.
Looking back, I kind of wish I had used a different background color, or a different color bowl. The colors here are just a bit too powerful. But I do like the overall look and feel of this photo.
And yes, for the record, I did eat this when done …
That’s my submission for the month and I am looking forward to seeing who else is taking part in this challenge and what they have to offer!
