As far as blogging resources go, the most beneficial book I have ever read was actually an ebook written by the highly successful food blogger Lindsay of Pinch of Yum. Most of what I know about food photography I owe to her. I actually set a goal this summer of getting two photos a month accepted to foodgawker and I have been accomplishing this every month since. This is coming from a girl who has been rejected over 100 times by foodgawker. In fact, I have high hopes that I can get a third photo accepted this month (Oct. 2017).
