In addition to my love of photography, I also have a passion for baking. Since it’s St. Valentine’s Day I decided to make a flourless chocolate cake and photograph the process. I am not a food blogger, my friend Megan over at The Flying Fork has that niche covered. Nor would I consider myself a food photographer. I do, however, love to photograph kitchen utensils, bowls, mixers, spoons and other items you might find in a kitchen. That is why I decided to edit these images in black and white. Well, that and the fact I am in one of those phases. I wanted to focus on the shapes, lights and patterns created when making food and that is just easier without color. Which raises a question. Can you make successful food images in black and white? Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
