One thing that I hadn't expected when I started my blog was how much I'd like the photography side of things. I've come to love obsessing about angles and learning about the way light works with (or against) things. I use two cameras, one a Cannon G11, which I use to take most of my shots, and the second, my iPhone. Usually used less frequently, however, through the discovery of my new favorite app, Instargram, my iPhone has played a much more important role in my photographic education.

Instagram allows me to manipulate pictures in fun and creative ways by changing backgrounds, color and lighting in ways that my other camera can't do. For that reason, I like to think of my trusty G11 as my "serious" camera and what I use to take my real shots and my iPhone shots as fun, little creative expressions of food. Through my blog, I document my more "serious" photos, but wanted to take a moment to share a collection of fun photos that I've taken using my iPhone. As I explore food photography even more, I'm planning to share more collections of photos. It's through photography that I feel that I can look at my work on a deeper level and get even more creative freedom, something that got me into food in the first place. This post is dedicated to some of my favorite Instagram shots - enjoy!
