Anyway, so I asked the food pornographers for their secrets on taking a great picture for my post “5 Tips on How To Take Food Porntastic Shots” I did today on LA Weekly‘s SquidInk food blog. Hint: The use of flash is the lesser of my above picture’s many sins. I’m still learning! Click here to get schooled on how to make your own food shots droolworthy.
