Dear friends. I am happy to announce that I have just returned from Yantai in China and the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. In the category Best Cookbook Photography I received a worldwide first price. I am very happy and honored. In photography and music, among many other subjects, it is very difficult, if possible, to find winners. Because of that I am especially honored and thankful for the best award that I have ever received. .
The images are from the book “Smörstekt, fortsättningen. Med LCHF-kost för hjärtat”.
Writer Gun-Marie Nachtnebel and graphic design Anna Gunneström.
More winners and more amazing photos. Great photography is being made every day all over the world. I told you, being a photographer is the best thing to be. I think. It is great to get inspiration from wunderful images like these.
I saw this on the BBC News App and thought you should see it:
Ten steps to improve your photography
Lecturer Grant Scott offers advice on how to use your interests to produce better pictures.
” Every decision you make in your life from what you wear, what you eat, how you vote, how you decorate your home, where you visit, what you listen to, what you watch and what you believe are influenced by professional photography and professional photographers. They don’t just shoot weddings.”
These 3 images changed my life years later with 9/11, when WTC was a target for a terror attack. These 2 images above were taken from the observation deck at World Trade Center. The one closest through the binoculars there. All with a small 35 mm Minox GT.
This is another interesting article I found on BBC.com about photography. This time food photography. All according to the pinkladyfoodphotographyoftheyear award. Lots of smoke. The winning photos are not just food, but also enviroment, cocking etc. Food photography is more than pans, pots and plates. Great choice I think.
