You pics are better than some of my favorite food blogs. The hard part is taking a pic of every step and writing it out. To be a great food blogg you need to be able to walk a novice cook thru your dish. Do that and you will have a big following.

I applaud your desire to produce a blog.

I recommend that you get a book on Food Styling, and one of the first things they cover is cleaning up the edges of the plate - No slop, sprinkles, drips, smears or anything except the edge of the food. And second, ONLY use on-camera flash outdoors (to fill in shadows). NEVER use on-camera flash indoors (and that includes shooting anything, especially people!) Use natural light, sidelighting, fill lighting, top flash (from a remote) and be aware of your background.

There are tons of other things for you to learn about food photography, but remain open to learning, and talk to those who have done it.

Good luck and have fun!

Would have been nice to have recipe for all of the above things, but he hasn't posted here since 2009, I doubt he is about to come back now. Too bad.

Yes, it is too bad. Those are some wonderful looking dishes.

For those of you who want or need instruction on making many types of sushi, this link leads to one of the best sushi/video sites I've ever found:

My Sushi Daddy

If you look to the right bottom of each page, it has a list of items to make. Each of these has it's own video of it being made.

Some really good looking sushi at this site!
