So yeah, I decided to start a food blog.

I've been thinking about it for a while and decided to make the leap today. I'd appreciate your feedback on the concept and the Wordpress site, and if you like it, I'd appreciate if you'd help spread the word.

Thanks.

bean/corn/ pepper salad. Black beans, diced red and green peppers, diced onions, grilled corn off the cob, chopped cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pepper. A bit of diced jalapeno if you like some heat. mix it all up and serve cold.

Doesn't look bad.

Food photography is very hard because of the styling.

Only thing I can suggest is don't try for the art effect all the time, sometimes get a nice exposure with some pop and some depth of field.

And shoot everything multiple ways and pick the best exposure out of that.

Try window lighting, direct flash, softbox, umbrellas, etc.

Some of the best food photography is with a bright strobe in softbox 6 inches away from the food.

Play with it all.

If you want to see an 1st rate food blog and video's on how to cook go to:

http://foodwishes.blogspot.com/

Chef John if fantastic.

The photos are great, the videos are great and the dude can really cook too.

He has lots of fans, so much that All Recipes bought him out.

But he still does the blog and videos.

Yep, I'm new to the art, so thanks for the feedback.

I generally do a lot of what you suggest and then pick my favorite shot. So I'm always shooting different exposures, different depths of field, multiple angles. Unless I'm shooting at night, I've always opened the windows (I generally much prefer natural light to artificial).

Any chance you will blog about some of your favorite tailgaiting food when we get closer to football season? I'm always looking for something different.

I like the lyrical content, and I think you are probably pretty marketable in the positive hip hop community. Are you trying to be overtly a "Christian" hip hop artist?


Edit: DOH! Wrong thread. This was supposed to be in thurman merman's debut album thread in the media center.

Any recommendations on baking chicken? Grill is out of service for the moment and I'm forced to journey into a new area.

Throw the chicken pieces in a ziplock bag, pour a little canola oil in and lightly coat the chicken. 400 degrees for about 40-45 minutes is perfect for thighs. Salt, pepper, fresh thyme and rosemary, and a lemon vinaigrette for a little acidity at the end.

I'm going to be eating a lot more chicken than usual this summer, so I'm looking for chicken recipes, too. Here are some I'll be using (maybe they'll give you some ideas)

Salsa chicken
Chicken cordon bleu
Chicken Kiev
Caper baked chicken
Honey butter baked chicken
Parmesan crusted chicken
Baked chicken with japanese mustard sauce

I prefer 170 minimum, but I don't even use a thermometer with chicken. At 375 for 40, I know that it'll be cooked properly.
