Sometime around the beginning of 2010, I decided that dineSarasota.com needed some better food photos. Not that the shots I was posting were horrific or embarrassing, but, I thought that the great food that was being prepared in our local restaurants deserved a little better representation.
Now, I have this camera. When I bought it last February, my goal was to use some Sarasota restaurants as, kind of, photo Guinea Pigs to improve my photography skills. Thanks to all of you who have let me tromp through your kitchens and dining rooms in search of edible subjects for the past few months.
I have been using the images in our dSDISH newsletter and on the site for the past six months or so. I’ve gotten some great feedback too. Thanks for that. It’s been fun and humbling trying to get that perfect shot.
I’m going to use this space to post some of those images without a lot of fanfare or editorial. My goal is to get these photos of our fantastic Sarasota food out there for you to see. Maybe you’ll be inspired to sit down and eat that dish! Oh, I’m also cooking up a few food contest ideas surrounding some of those posts. So, keep an eye out for that.
So, without further adieu, here is our:
