food styling - photography resource

Just got this in my mail box..

If your interested in food styling and food photography you might find the Foodesigns.com site interesting (I am in NO way affiliated with these people).

It has resources and inspirations for the aspiring food stylist and food photography. It also recommends some books that could serve to inspire your inner food-Rembrandt.

If you would like to share some of your ideas regarding food photography you might be interested in this (found on the main page of this site):

They definitely have great tips... I started subscribing to Tweezer Times about a month ago... it's all pretty much professional food stylists and photographers writing about their own personal experiences. A lot of it is about managing business, but there is plenty of info on current trends and how tos as well. Even if you don't sign up for Tweezer Times, there are good tips on the site... plus, Lisa (the site host) does a good job of keeping up to date with various food styling and photography classes, etc.

when you say free subscription you mean fee dont you? Its $49.50 a year for 6 online issues; a bit steep dont you think?

Their "free" tweezer times costs $55. Perhaps there are others sites with good hints for free.
