Top Ten Macheesmo Photos
I would say that I spend about as much time on photos for each Macheesmo post as I do on actually writing the post itself. If this website has taught me anything to date it is that photography is hard.
That said, I have almost 800 photos on Macheesmo now and there are literally thousands of photos on my computer that will never see the light of day due to their suckiness. So I thought it would be fun to do a Top Ten post showing my personal favorites from the last six months.
Whoa. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for six months.
All of the photos link to the original posts.
#10 – I learn to use a camera
This was the first set of photos I took after acquiring a cheap photography light and also getting some helpful tips from a friend. There are about two months of photos on Macheesmo before this post that aren’t terrible, but I considered this post a turning point.
#9 – Colors and white boards
I really love the photos in this post because of the awesome colors. This photo above was especially colorful I thought. This was also the post where I realized how awful it looked to have a reflecting white board in the shot. In the post there is one in almost every shot. Sigh.
#8 – I don’t learn my lesson
Homemade chicken soup is one of my favorite things to make in the winter. This photo reminds me of feeling better after a few days of sickness. I also forgot everything I learned about keeping white boards out of the shot.
#7 – Groups of butter
I took this photo recently, and I really liked the look of the wrapped up butters. I think this may be because I can just imagine all of the lovely meals I can make with each little bundle.
#6 – The grilled cheese
This was the post where I think I succeeded at making and photographing the grilled cheese. It was also the post that gave me my first 1,000 hit day on Macheesmo so it holds a special place in my heart.
#5 – Are those even real?
I swear these are the real nachos I made, but when I look at them I think they look almost too perfect. They look almost staged! And I guess they sort of are because I knew I was going to take a photo of them. Trust me though. They don’t just look good. They are good.
#4 – Artsy Figgy
The photo on the left I found especially artsy and pretty. Something about how the figs are sliced was cool. The sandwiches I made with them were pretty darn good also.
#3 – A pork roast
I was nervous when I was cooking this as I haven’t cooked a lot of full roasted, but it came out really well and photographed well also. It made for a great dinner party.
#2 – Mashed Potato Pizza
This one post has accounted for about 1/4 of my Macheesmo traffic. It also happens to be delicious and this is my favorite photo from that post.
This is one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. It’s a photo of my nephew who I rarely see and he is just so happy in it. It makes me smile every time I look at it.
Now that I’ve shown some of my favorite photos I would love to see some of yours. If you have a favorite photo either that you’ve taken or just in general, post it in a comment!
