Food Photography with Artificial Ego Lights

I get so many questions from all of my rockstar readers and many of them revolve around my photos, so I thought I would share one of my favorite food photography tips today!

Food Photography with Lowel Ego Artificial Lights

It has been 7 years since I began my food blog at My Kitchen Escapades and when I look back at some of my older photos, I can’t help but cringe!  In fact, I have started a new Recipe Retake Series just so you can have a proper photo of some of my earlier recipes.  You deserve it!

Over the years, the biggest lighting roadblock I’ve encountered are the long Minnesota winters because it gets dark at 5:00 pm.  I love natural sunlight for shooting my photos, but that isn’t always available when I am pulling a recipe out the oven.  Especially since most of the baking I do for our family of 8 is after my littles are fast asleep in their beds and it is pitch black outside.

So, let’s take a minute and take a look at different lighting options with the exact same photo….

My little three had so much fun making these cupcakes, especially the bunny ears.  However, my five year old was the only one who let me photograph her while working.  I think the other five kids might start charging me to model for blog posts if I’m not careful!
