10 Steps to Improve Your Food Photography

10 Steps to Improve Your Food Photography | http://www.roseclearfield.com

One of my favorite aspects of starting and working on this blog the past year and a half has been improving my food photography. I’ve been snapping pictures of my food for articles and social media posts for years. But I didn’t get serious about it until recently. Producing posts with my original recipes and photos of them that I’m really proud of is extremely empowering.

While I’m far from an expert on food photography, I have learned quite a bit, mostly through trial and error and studying as many great food photos as I can. Like any type of photography, many people will look at great food photos and assume that the photographer is using a DSLR camera and/or has amazing lighting in his/her kitchen. While a high-end camera and gorgeous lighting are assets for any photographer, there’s a lot more that goes into stunning food photography.

New Baby FAQ

In my two months of Tommy update yesterday, I mentioned that there are a few questions I’ve answered all the time over the past couple of months. I decided to write a separate post with these questions, so my two month update didn’t great crazy long. Since we got Tommy, there are three questions I’ve gotten far more than any other questions.

Two Months of Tommy

Waiting two months to write a first baby update is crazy because so much changes from week to week, sometimes even day to day, during the first two months of life. From day one, there is so much that I’ve wanted to write down, but I’ve also had no idea where to start. Plus, I’ve felt taking a lot of time out for writing is time that I’d rather be spending with Tommy and other family members, getting something done around the house, or let’s be honest, sleeping. So here we are two months in and I’m finally writing a post about our little guy.

Adoption Update

[Trigger warning: In this blog post, I discuss our successful adoption match and the first couple of months with our son. If you’re in a sensitive place due to infertility, miscarriage, pregnancy loss, etc., please proceed with caution.]

It’s been a little quiet around the blog this summer because we went to Europe for two weeks, we were back for two weeks, we had some of our best friends visit for two weeks…and then a little guy entered our world. The day after our friends left, we met with a birth mom and dad, who chose us to be the parents of their child. Initially, we all thought the birth mom was due later in July. But she ended up going into labor right after the matching meeting and delivered the next day.

Essential Summer Workout Gear

Essential Summer Workout Gear | http://www.roseclearfield.com

Summer is the only time of the year I’m motivated to work out. I really admire people who have the motivation to work out all year round. Maybe this will be the year I finally continue the habits I develop in the summer into the next season. Having nice workout clothes and other workout gear I’m excited to use definitely helps. The vast majority of my essential summer workout gear is items you can use throughout the year.
