First off, I might be in the wrong forum so mods, please move if need be. I am doing a cookbook and I don't think that I have the skills to take all the pics well as I don't know enough. The other problem I have is hiring someone as it's sporadic to when I get around to it. SO, I'm looking for someone who can create different backgrounds, make them look nice, add their artistic opinion, etc...for a fee. I can take as many pics as you'd like to work with in a photo tent. I will be using different platters for each but I don't want everything to look the same. I'm basically just using a black background. I also suppose I need to learn to take better macro shots of the food itself, rather than the stuff surrounding stuff. I'm trying to figure out how to blur other parts so I can also pay for ongoing advice. I read so much stuff, I feel I know less now I use a canon digital rebel eos. Please feel free to PM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with some ideas and pricing ballpark Thanks!
