do you want to know a secret?  i was so intimidated by food photography and tended to shy away from it, until i met trisha hughes of “eat your beets” and fell in love with her instagram feed.  she makes photographing food look effortless, with images worthy of being in cookbooks and on the cover of magazines.  i found myself gushing over her food photography and wanted to learn more about the secrets to successfully photographing food.  so, when she offered to send me a copy of her new eBook “eat pretty things” for me to write a review on, i was so excited!  and, i was ready to read all of her tips and tricks so i could be inspired to improve my food photography!  my goodness, this eBook is amazing!  i didn’t even know how much there was to learn about food photography until picking up this book and it taught me so many things that i could start doing right away.

The Only Book You Need To Learn About Food Photography | Bethadilly Photography

from the very first page of “eat pretty things” by trisha hughes, i knew i would need a pen and paper to write down all of her amazing tips.  i originally was only going to sit down to read for a few minutes, but before i knew it i was completely hooked and could not/would not put this book down until i was finished.  i found myself curled up on the couch, reading all her tips as fast as i could, and feeling more inspired than ever!  there was so much to learn about food photography and the book answered all of my questions.  not to mention, her photos in her eBook had me simply drooling!  not only does trisha photograph beautiful food, but she makes beautiful food too!

as i was reading this eBook, i was amazed at how much information i was getting!  in one sitting, i was learning all about what gear i would need, what accessories were helpful when photographing food, and what camera settings were recommended when shooting food.  i was also so excited to see pullbacks of how trisha was creating such beautiful images in her very own kitchen!  her pullbacks and her simple backdrops have me encouraged, more than ever, that i can achieve some beautiful food photographs too from the comfort of my own home and with simple and easy setups!  it feels so great to be able to replace my feelings of intimidation to feelings of inspiration when it comes to food photography!  now, i’m inspired and not afraid.

want to know my favorite part about this eBook?  trisha also gives tips about how to style your food and what you should focus on when you are purchasing props for your shots!  i was so happy to finally get a glimpse into her world of pretty spoons and simple, yet elegant setups!  and this is more than just an eBook…she also includes eight videos that individually share different tips and tricks for editing your food photographs in lightroom!  yes, you heard that right, eight videos!

and, if you are just as in love with her instagram feed as i am, you will be happy to hear that she shares some great tips for creating amazing food photographs for instagram.  have i talked you into this eBook yet?  can you tell why i am so excited to recommend her book to you all?  seriously, you need this eBook in your life if you want to learn about food photography.  just talking about it makes me want to reread it!  so, go buy this eBook!  you won’t be disappointed, but instead you’ll be inspired.  oh, and because this eBook is called “eat pretty things” it is so important that you enjoy a pretty snack while you read it!  i only thought it too appropriate to have a cupcake as i read about photographing pretty food.  now, go get inspired!  you will adore this eBook.
