Food Photography – It has become an obsession to me these days…
I agree that i am not very good at it.. and I am still in the learning phase… and like the saying goes “Practice makes you Perfect”, I am clicking everything that is edible 🙂
I have started submitting pictures to foodgwaker and tastespotting… but every time they get rejected.
Well, I am not disappointed… it gives me a scope to improve and think what I have done wrong.
At last two days back one of my picture was accepted in foodgwaker…. I guess they are easy to please than the tastespotting guys 🙂
Anyways, I made my first baby step 🙂
I made these muffins along with the Orange muffins on my son’s Birthday.. I guess you will enjoy them as much as my son did!!
