Gosh! No, I don't go that far back with Fotolia...  :D
But I do still have the impression that there are many awful food pictures accepted, some from mass contributors that really spoil some of the search results. I wish they were stricter, even if it meant saying farewell to my acceptance rate.

hello Pheby:
how to prepare the lighting for those food?they look great  ;)

Thanks! Most important: no flash from the front! Even more important than that is the styling, I think. I'm sure styling is my strongest point. My lighting is even, meaning it has no additional highlights or anything that that would make a shot look more interesting. But I think it suits microstock-style. It takes a lot of time to arrange the props and style the food until it's all just right. Also, I spend a lot of time setting up shooting plans well in advance to get the most out of the ingredients, and then it's shopping and then changing round all the plans because one important ingredient is missing or not quite to my liking. Second best just won't do! Most of the food in my port was actually edible, but sometimes I just don't fancy slices of cold duck or half-done vegetables...
I'm so in love with food photography! I could go on and on and on  :D

No, I do this full-time now. And I'm not a chef, I had nothing to do with food professionally before. I don't even enjoy cooking.  ;)
