If you've missed our Foodie Photography Series, you can check out Part I and Part II now! Yet another tip for taking great food pictures is to use a colorful and fun background. And this tip isn't just reserved for food photos -- Sherry and John at Young House Love have been snapping adorable shots of their daughter Clara this way -- using a different pretty background for each week of her first year (check out the pics on their Flickr site).
Though our food isn't quite as cute as babies are, we've used the patterned background method ourselves to add spice to the blog. Usually, we just use a pretty plate or trivet. Here are just a few examples:
When I bought this super adorable carrot trivet, I just had to get two. Of course, this means that now YOU -- yes YOU -- have a chance to win it!
