Yay !! I am here writing about one of my virtual mentor Corinna Gissemann’ s Food Photography Book and a worldwide giveaway !!!
I have been blogging for nearly 8 years and have learnt over the period that creating a successful appealing food photograph is not easy at all. One really doesn’t need to have all the fancy gadgets to achieve it. There goes a lot of planning and preparation behind every successful image. Its all about what appeals right in the picture to you!!
I guess about 1 1/2 years ago, I came across Corinna Gissemann’s work in Food Photography group in Facebook. At the first sight, I was totally stunned. What amazed me was her Behind the Scene Images accompanying the appealing images. Let me tell you, as I started following her work , I would ritually wait to see her new creation and learn something new everyday.
I do owe a lot of credit to my Dark Moody Images to her. Not only did I get inspired from her pictures, but also learn’t so much. There are so many times, I have written to her, sending my image across for critic and she would come back with some amazing tips. Corinna’s work has groomed me to be a better photographer over the years!!! I am extremely thankful to her for this.
Then when the folks at RockyNook asked me if I would like to review a copy of her book, I was literally jumping ( Read like my little girl). Corinna’s Food Photography Book is a great guide for starters, where she shows its quite possible to take great photos without fancy gear or studios and with some basic techniques and tricks.
