Resolution #1: I want to be a porn star

Fun fact: I love looking at photos of food – I’m one of those people who gets slightly upset when a cookbook doesn’t have any pictures in it.  Mouth-watering photos will make me want to try a recipe (and also help to gauge if it’s going horribly wrong) more than a snazzy title ever will.

Over the weekend, I discovered the world of food photography…  It’s amazing.  Sites dedicated to scrumptious photos of food, most of which you can then click through to get the recipe.  And I discovered that this is known as “food porn” which amuses me no end (I’m really mature like that).

Ah, the title of this post all makes sense now – I want to be a food porn star (I mean really, what were you thinking?!) My food photos so far are nothing special: the white balance is a little off and I haven’t spent 5 hours trying to make the composition perfect (patience is not one of my virtues).  But I thought I’d give it a go anyway – I have nothing to lose…

So I submitted one of the photos from my mince pie post… Taste Spotting rejected it, Food Gawker also rejected it, as did Photograzing (I think – I’m a bit confused by their notification system).  But Dessert Stalking accepted it!  They published it yesterday, and it actually made my day (thank you!)  So I’m not too bothered about getting rejected by the other sites – it’s now turned into a challenge, so by the end of 2011  I’d like to have at least one photo accepted by each of them.  And that would make me a food porn star.  (Or so I like to think!)

Bring. It. On.

[Edit on 24-12: Actually, Photograzing published my mince pie photo yesterday!  I guess they just have a huge submission queue.  Exciting stuff!  You can see it here if you like.]
