I have some exciting news: FoodGawker have finally accepted one of my photos!! I submitted one of the chocolate and hazelnut mousse ones, and it was published yesterday. This makes me incredibly happy and it’s quite possibly the highlight of my week! I think a celebratory batch of brownies are definitely on the cards for tomorrow. Perhaps followed by a long swim to counteract the brownies, ha ha…
If you follow my blog, you’ll know that one of the resolutions or challenges that I set myself for 2011 was to have a photo accepted by each of the main “food porn” sites (FoodGawker, TasteSpotting, Photograzing, DessertStalking and DishFolio, which I discovered last month and they’ve already accepted some of my photos). DessertStalking and Photograzing have accepted quite a lot of my photos, and TasteSpotting finally accepted a photo back in March (though they’ve rejected every single one since then, ha ha), so FoodGawker was the last site to elude me. But I’ve finally cracked it, so now I’ve successfully completed the challenge. Hurrah!
So go on, let’s have a look at the “winning” photo:
Interestingly, TasteSpotting rejected the very same photo for “lighting/colour.” But, aside from the fact that I personally think it’s a rather good photo (not biased at all, obviously) I’m not too annoyed about that – I’m fully aware how subjective the whole process is. I suppose the challenge now is to get the same photo accepted by all the sites. But there’s no rush. I’m currently happy with having had at least one photo accepted on each site, and trying to improve my photos so that more get approved.
Right, time to dig out that brownie recipe I’ve been wanting to try… Wherever you are in the world, enjoy the rest of your day!
