Recently I received a comment on one of my posts where a fellow blogger expressed her frustration with her food photography – all her pictures look the same – was her complaint.
Upon checking out her blog, I noticed that she has only been blogging for a few months and that her pictures look just like mine did 4 years ago: very one-sided. I remember back when I first started blogging and taking pictures of my food that I was always so frustrated that my pictures never ever came out the way I had seen them with my eye. The “simple” explanation is that my eyes are much better lenses than the one on my point-and-shoot camera and that the brain compensates quite a lot – much like the brain of a digital camera. Except, that, well, a human brain can do much much more…so far.

Every month I receive an email from Chew On That asking for my opinion on a food-related matter as part of their Monthly Mouthful.

You can find the whole post here.

However, there are still a few “kinks” to work out, which is why I’m asking for your help.
The main Issue is the sled I am using to elevate the desserts.
1. I need a box behind it to extend the space behind the sled – how should I make this “disappear”?
2. What can I put underneath the sled so it doesn’t look so empty?
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
