We eat with our eyes first...

so the saying goes.  Fork and Hose Co. receives so many great meal pics every day from our followers and for that we cannot thank all of you enough.  We try to post as many as possible but unfortunately some we just can't post because of either poor photo quality, half-eaten or not being the finished product.  We get it though, we are firefighters not photographers!  Heck, many times it's hard to get a pic because the crew is ravenous and dives right into the plate.  So we here at F&H Co. thought we might give you guys some pointers on food photography that we learned from Food Network star The Pioneer Woman.  A better photo means a better chance at being featured on our soon to be new RECIPE and TIPS section on the website! Ooops, did I just let the cat out of the bag!?

Don't get so close to the food that your not sure what your even looking at

Try and keep the photos light and bright

Avoid using the flash, try to capture natural light such as near a window

White dishes make the best backdrops for food photos

Fill up most of the frame with food, try to avoid dead space

And finally, just keep taking pictures!  It's the only way to get better!


Here is some Penne with Broccoli, Garlic and Oil that I made
