"Sabura di Terra"



Two friends of mine, who are excellent cooks, decided to create a blog. It's called Sabura di Terra, which means "Flavours of the Earth" in creole language from Guinea-Bissau and I've been photographing their delicious food from overseas. Photographing food is not an easy task and as I am not a photographer, I've still much to learn.

That looks like a fun new learning challenge for you. Surely you will get sustenance along the way.

Well you certainly got my appetite going with these images JM :)

Looks delicious. Often the food photographers spray oil over the dis to make it look a million dollars. My son however, who got to eat the delicious food two chefs cooked after shooting it for their cookbook, never did so.
Just enjoy lots of the food until you discover the best angles and light.

You did a great job with these photos. I agree that food photography is a challenge and it is difficult to get a pleasing image. I always try it when I post a review on Trip Advisor, but am not very successful. I love Dina's comments about sustenance.

JM said...

@Arija: We always eat the food, therefore I can not spray it! :-)

Mouth-watering!

Well, my friend, if you get any better at photographing food, all of the major food magazines will be fighting for your services.

These are superb pictures.

And please stop saying you're not a photographer - you're one of the best with a great eye, and a great sense for what's important in a photo!

Merisi said...

I was already salivating when I looked at these pictures on my phone during lunch hour (and no food in sight)!
Now I will head on over and see what it is all about.
thank you for the link,

What a terrific shots indeed, JM! You did a great job -- as always, whatever the subject! Of course now I am hungry! Guess I'll have to go look for some food, but it surely won't be as good as this appears to be!!!

Sujin Jung said...

It is for sure a hard tesk to take pictures of food, but your shots already look so great because it made me super hungry! ;) Good luck!
