Photography

Photography is one of my favorite hobbies. I studied black and white photography some years ago at an art college, using a manual Minolta camera for my shots and developing my photographs in a darkroom. It was fun working in the darkroom, seeing the images emerge on paper and creating special effects with various equipment. But it was expensive, too. Now that I use a digital camera, a Canon Ti5, I appreciate the affordability that digital photography offers. And through my design work I’ve learned that Photoshop is the new darkroom, allowing me to creatively enhance the photography I use in my projects.

Here are some photographs I’ve taken within the last few years. You may recognize some of them…I’ve used a few in some of my blog posts!

    • I’ve always enjoyed it, but hadn’t done that much until I started my blog. Now I have a place to put my photos! :) You’ll have to give me some photography tips sometime!

        • I like using natural light the best–I don’t have any special lighting equipment right now. I have a big window that gets really great light coming through at certain times of the day, so I have a short table right by the window that I use to set food, or whatever I’m taking a picture of, on. The only downside is I have limited time to take photos! If it happens to be a darker day and the natural light isn’t great, I brighten it up in Photoshop, which comes in handy for that!

          • That sounds just like my setup! I love natural light and I do my editing in Lightroom. But since there is such a small window of good, usable light, I’ve been looking into the Lowel Ego light stand. Some food photographers swear by it and I would like to have a backup light source. We shall see!
