Well, actually, it’s not very cold here in Sherwood, Oregon.
The lack of snow, ice or even frost required that I up the creativity level for my latest Moms with Cameras Project52 assignment. Our inspiration for week 4 was “cold.”
I have to proudly say that I love these two photos. I used my 70-200mm lens on the “macro” setting. Such a sweet lens. I’ve achieved some stunning stills with it and, of course, it’s amazing for sports.
I showed these images to my oldest son, Ben. He complimented me on the popsicle photo and then, with concern in his voice, asked what I did with the frozen blueberries. I told him not to worry, they were tucked safely back in the freezer.
Ben’s a bit obsessed with frozen blueberries. Every year we harvest a huge quantity of blueberries from our plants and the u-pick down the road…basically just for Ben…or so he thinks. I won’t even tell him how many I ate during the photo shoot!
I’m having some serious fun on my new food blog, Eating with Angie. A great way to keep up with the new recipes, restaurant reviews and garden progress is to follow Eating with Angie on Facebook. You’ll know right away if there’s something new and get a link right to the new article.

When life gives me cause to celebrate, I eat and take pictures. I am thrilled to be uniting my love of good food and photography in a new blog, Eating with Angie.
The basic principals of portrait photography hold very true even when it comes to pictures of what we eat. Good lighting, sharp focus and clearing out distracting clutter and backgrounds are key. And, all of that can be quite challenging in a dimly-lit restaurant or kitchen.
I can’t wait for Spring and longer days so that my dinner creations can get some natural light on them.
I’m using all of my resources and getting great advice online. You would be amazed and how many people write about staging food.
Some do go a bit over the top though. My photos will be accurate representations of what the food actually looks like. I mean, how disappointing would it be to follow a recipe exactly and not achieve the artificial beauty of the dish in the photo? Besides, these look pretty tasty without cheating.
