I recently discovered the food photography, styling and recipe blog Tartelette. Such. Beautiful. Photography. Helene Dejardin became a food photographer later in life and is self-taught (which gives me hope!). I think food photography is right up there after children's book illustrator in my life dreams.
And the best news? She just wrote a how-to book, From Plate to Pixel, and it's amazing!
Here is the book trailor in case you are interested. You are. Aren't you? Did I mention this book is amazing* and full of beautiful photography and tells you just how to become a food photographer in 5 easy steps? Ok, not quite. :) But I can't wait to read through and learn from it!
*Bonus: she included recipes in the book. :)
