Lately, I’ve noticed something that’s really irked me. If you couldn’t guess from the title, it’s wasteful food bloggers. (Professional food and product photographers too, but we’ll stick to bloggers for the sake of this post.) Yes, food blogging can require a lot of trial and error. You may get sick of eating the same thing over and over while testing recipes. But that doesn’t mean you should toss the leftovers in the trash! Or your edible props, for that matter! Food waste is a huge problem, so even though you may be paying for the food you’re trashing, the practice is still pretty uncool. Luckily, throwing massive amounts of food away or polishing them up with substances that make them literally inedible is totally avoidable. In this post, I’ll share a few tips and tricks to help you avoid being a wasteful jerk.
Whoa whoa whoa, what’s this? A new blog category? YUP. For those of you who don’t know, since starting this blog a couple of years ago, I’ve gotten very into food photography. It started as a way to make the recipes I’d post on here look better. Because as it turns out, making food look good on camera is no easy feat. But somewhere along the way, I fell in love with it. I like to think that I’ve gotten pretty good at it, and am even trying to make a career of it! At this point, I get a ton of questions about food photography and styling on Instagram. I’m all for transparency and helping others improve, so I decided to start offering food photography and styling tips. For my first topic, I’m tackling stop motion.
