In the spirit of killer discounts and Thanksgiving dinner shared with your closest family and friends inside a tent waiting outside Best Buy, the brains behind the awesome food blog a Pinch of Yum and food photography eBook Tasty Food Photography are offering 50% off Tasty Food Photography! The deal is on now and lasts until 11:59 p.m. Monday, December 2, 2013. The promo code is TFP50.
But before you go running off to do anything crazy like, I don’t know, take advantage of that awesome sale, let me say a thing or two about it. I purchased the eBook a couple months ago when I was beginning to think that, oh, pictures might matter just a little bit?! Turns out they matter a LOT. They’re pretty much 100% of what gets my readers in the door, and consequently my readership has exploded since I read Lindsey’s eBook Tasty Food Photography.
The eBook really breaks food photography down for you, from showing her setup and thought process to step-by-step editing workflows and processes using different editing software (including iPhoto!). I had been so intimidated by established bloggers with killer photography, but Lindsey’s POV made it super manageable. I’d like to think that in the past couple months, my photography has gone from lackluster at best to pretty darn good – at least Tastespotting and FoodGawker think so! I definitely have Lindsey to thank for that.
It’s absolutely perfect for bloggers, but would be a wonderful read even for food-lovers who enjoy sharing pictures of their food. Who doesn’t, right? You can absolutely take your shots from iPhone crap (let’s be honest) to professional-looking with just a little information from someone incredibly knowledgeable. What I love about Lindsey is that she isn’t a photographer – or, well, not by trade, at least. She speaks a language everyone can understand, instead of jumping right in using photographer-specific lingo and laughing at only-could-possibly-understand-or-care jokes about aperture being wide (THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID! HAHAHA! hahaha.. hah.. huh?) – you know the books!
I love that Lindsey shows her befores and afters.. making it seem easy to improve as much as she herself has.
If you’re a pro food photographer looking to break into National Geographic, thismight not be the eBook for you. But for uh, everyone else? It’s definitely worth a download. Reading Tasty Food Photography inspired me to really take on food photography as a serious hobby and possibly professional endeavor (once I save up juuuust a bit more for some great gear), and I’m really really not just saying that. It was recommended to me, and now I’m recommending it to you.
Take advantage of the sale by clicking here! The promo code is TFP50. I think that stands for Tasty.. Food.. Photography.. 50% off. 50% off, y’all. That’s like… half. Half.. empty. A half empty price. OK, I’m going to stop talking in 3.. 2..
