About

Welcome to Learn Food Photography – a  blogsite for food photography and food styling enthusiasts who like to learn more about photography and styling.

We are G and Neel, the couple on the other side of your computer screen and running Learn Food Photography. Currently, we post twice a week (on Mondays and Thursdays) and write about food photography, food styling, equipment and tools, ethics and business of food photography and styling. G loves to cook the food and food styling and Neel loves food photography. Read more about us (about G coming soon) and the story behind Learn Food Photography.

About Neel

My name is Neel and I am a hobbyist food photographer. In my other life, I work as an Engineer repairing stuff that someone else broke. As far as I remember, it has been about 12 years since I picked up first used a camera. It was an old Russian 35 mm film camera – Zenit. Though it was heavy and bulky with not many lens options, that old camera was enough to draw me in to the world of photography.

In these 12 years, I have loaded lot of film rolls in several cameras, developed them and loaded another roll. Couple of years ago, like most of the photographers, I stopped loading film rolls too. These days, I plug in my memory card and download it on my laptop.

In these 12 years, I have learnt a lot and I still feel I don’t know everything about photography and cameras. So, while I may trick you to believe that I am an expert, don’t believe it. And every time I try, remind me “you are still learning, you are not an expert” :).

My Love Affair

It was just one stormy night and clouds were all over the place. With lightening cracking down our ceiling, there was absolutely nothing to do. The itch of shooting something was making me uneasy. The God of Weather or the God of Rain weren’t very happy with me. G was busy baking and then she pulled out this wonderful brownie. And that was it. I knew I have to take that photo. And I did. That photo turned out just alright. Nothing mind blowing for the first food photo.

Story Behind Learn Food Photography

I instantly knew I need improvement and I started researching. I googled and searched and researched some more. There wasn’t enough information for those who wanted to learn food photography. There were some $2000 seminars and $500 courses. For a hobbyist, that was a bit too much. So I went the frugal way. After couple of months of  research, I improved somewhat and researched some more. This is what I am still doing today – learning something new, improving a little bit and research some more.

Now, I have a stack of my notes that are getting tough to organize and keep intact. I have started converting to blog posts, I wished that’s how I would have started. So while, this blog is still young, my notes, lessons learned and mistakes made, have been with me for quite a while.

The motivation to start Learn Food Photography came from the frustration of not finding information about food photography online. In the coming months, our plan is to post more frequently and engage our readers.

LFP Insider

LFP Insider is a small tight community of food photographers who are working to improve their food photography. The material published here is not published in other places. If you are serious about food photography, you should become an Insider.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope we can help each other and become a better food photographer.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Great information. Lucky me I recently found your website by accident (stumbleupon). I’ve saved as a favorite for later!

    Right here is the right web site for everyone who wishes to understand this topic. You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a subject that has been written about for a long time. Excellent stuff, just great!

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a little homework on this. And he actually ordered me lunch due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this matter here on your site.

    Thanks, I have just been searching for info about this subject for a while and yours is the best I’ve discovered till now. But, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you certain in regards to the supply?

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
