Food Styling Challenge | Black Background / by Carey


Oh, that'll be soooo easy.  I've pinned some awesome food images with dark or black backgrounds and color schemes.  Love them.  I've so got this.

Did you hear that?  That sound of tires screeching to a halt?  Yeah. that was me.  Me NOT "so got this" about food and a black background.

So much harder than I expected.  I wasn't getting it.  I was so dissapointed.  And I was out of time.  This is as good as it gets, folks.  You better believe that once I get caught up on some life things, I'll be trying this out again.

One thing I learned is that these black or dark background images REQUIRE props.  And I'm not really a prop girl. So that'll take some research AND cash.  But at least I know it going forward now.  I suppose that means I did learn something.
