Over thel ast couple of years, I’ve realized something kinda profound…food bloggers are neurotic people. We are! We’ve got issues. We have to do it all, buy it, make it, shoot it, eat it, test it, edit it, post it and then clean up the entire simultaneous F-5 tornado and nuclear explosion that completely obliterated our kitchens. #Foodbloggerproblems We haz ’em. This Supreme Pizza Pull Apart bread and I almost went round for round in the photography department last weekend, but I had to show it to you because I done ’bout ate half of it myself – it was that good, but I was raging the entire time because it was not nearly as kind to me to be photogenic for 10 minutes so I could take a half way decent picture. It was a stand off – there were tumble weeds blowing, Western shoot out music playing, twitchy gun slinger hands ready to take eachother down in .149 flat. It was on! Ultimately, I won – with my face. But these photos do not do it justice for how good it is!
Over the winter months so many food bloggers (including me) lamented the horrors and atrocities that are darkening winter nights, and rushed photo jobs. And JUST when we totally find out winter photo taking groove, Spring shows up with a smile and a “Hey, Girl…I got some sunshine for you” and then BLAMO, we have to get used to shooting all over again. No? Just my problem then? Okay, fair. Like I said – food bloggers are neurotic!
We got 99 problems and lighting IS one.
The same day as shooting this pizza bread I also had to make and shoot the Smoked Salmon Dip that I made for Julie’s Surprise Bridal Shower. The main difference between the two – this was shot in my dining room, where I usually shoot all my photos. The dip – shot in my bedroom. My bedroom. We follow the light and never did I think that in this cave of an apartment I’d be finding better light in my Bedroom. If I start shooting in my bathroom, that has no windows, one of you can give me an intervention and send me to sit in a corner.
Rachel from Baked by Rachel has had me drooling over her pull Cinnamon Apple Pull Apart bread for months – MONTHS, so I had to borrow her recipe and make a pizza filled version that made me want to drink beer and watch football…. I greatly dislike and roll my eyes at football… THATS how awesome this is – I actually want to watch football. Next time this makes an appearance, I’m making her apple cinnamon version, and rewatching Downton Abbey. Again.
Much more my speed.
