egular readers of this blog know that I'm always working on ways to improve and enhance my photos for this site whether it's with the use of props or just plain lighting techniques.
With that in mind, I've decided to start a new, regular column called, GET THE SHOT where I'll share what I did to get the photos for a particular post.

At the heart of any mouth-watering picture is the food styling behind it.
Lately, I've been studying food styling techniques as I continue to try to improve my photography skills to benefit this blog and other personal projects.
How many of you own a Rubik Cube? Even if you don't have one, I'm sure you're familiar with the popular multi-colored blocks that are a real puzzle to solve. I've had one for years and I still can't figure it out.
I've created a project that is Rubik Cube-like and you're going to love it. Instead of colors, this game features images that are close to your heart.
This is also one puzzle you may find infinitely more fun (and perhaps easier) to solve.
