Photography & Video

I really enjoyed this post on photography over at the food blog Omnomicon and the ensuing discussion and thought you might, too. It’s about photographing food (and let me tell you, it’s not easy!), but the lessons and tips apply to photographing any still life, whether it’s chowder or a pair of mittens or a quilt. I know a lot of crafters struggle with trying to capture the beauty of the things they’ve made for their blog or online shop, so hopefully there’s some useful info here!
In the post, Aleta argues against point-and-shoots because of their lack of control, but what do you think? Do you have any tricks for taking good photos and making the most of your equipment?
