I treated myself to this sweet digitial photography and food styling book for my birthday last month. I’ve been following Tartelette’s blog ever since I discovered her macaron-making workshops and I was ECSTATIC to find this book written and photographed by her. I was so excited I clicked, “BUY NOW” without thinking twice. I gave up my entire birthday wish list that I’ve kept since the beginning of the year (which included a facial, massage, Cake Boss book and a few other things) for this book and it was WELL WORTH IT!
I always wanted to improve my photography/food styling skills but couldn’t find the proper resources to do so (without paying for it, of course!). I found a lot of “product photography” but never “food” photography. This book is absolutely amazing, beautifully photographed and a pleasure to read. Helene would give pointers on how to “style” your food using different ingredients taken at different stages of preparation (raw materials vs finished product) focusing on colours, textures and positioning. She would take different shots using multiple settings and explain the key differences and which design is best suited for each dessert.
I love this book!
If you love photography, want to learn a thing or two about food styling or just love looking at pretty pictures… I highly recommend this book! In the meantime, visit Helene’s blog.
French is her native language and you can tell by the way she writes. I still love it though… I think it’s quite endearing
I would like to take this time to thank myself for this birthday present and a quick apology to all the gifts that didn’t “make it” this year. Teeheee!
