Food photography goal

This time last year I tried to get some food photography accepted by foodgawker.

I tried four times and each time my submission were declined. The good think about food gawker is declined submissions are accompanied with a reason. For me it was basically a problem with low flat lighting in my food photography. At the time I thought I’d try to do something to improve my food photography and while I did that I promptly forgot about submitting to foodgawker. Since then I’ve basically used Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to share my food photographs.

Last night while I was in bed and looking at photographs on my iPad I browsed through the various sharing options and remembered 500px and foodgawker. I entered my foodgawker account and thought I’d try again. Because foodgawker prefers a recipe and an associated blog post I used my quinoa fritters

This morning I received an e-mail from foodgawker accepting my submission. It gave me a little skip in my step as I walked home from breakfast.

So now I have one photograph accepted I’ll start submitting more. Hopefully I’ll improve my acceptance:decline ratio 

A small step for many others but a big one for me
