In his own words, well-travelled blogger Bonjwing Lee of The Ulterior Epicure is reminded at every turn–show, don’t tell. This is a primer for bloggers who find themselves increasingly moving out of their controlled, well-lit kitchens and studios and thrown into covering restaurants, chefs, dinners and events. Lee walks us through what it takes to capture high impact food photos in the moment, especially when you have very little control over your environment.
