Well today is one of those days...I need a little loving.
Have any of you culinary bloggers ever tried to get a food photo published online with foodgawker?
I thought it might be a nice way to get some of my recipes shared and just a little ego kick to boot. Well, that's why I am ranting. The past two weeks I have been submitting pictures left right and centre and every single one of them has been rejected. I tell you, it's left me very bruised in that baby ego and spitting and hissing at the thought my photos are rubbish.
For those of you who don't know, foodgawker is a site of unbelievably delicious recipes and beautiful photography. I don't claim to have the best photography but did I submit my best. Here is the outcome, with "feedback".
Peppermint Ganache Cups "Photo/food composition"
Home Style Sausage Rolls "Photo/food composition"
Strawberry Coconut Swirl Biscuits "Photo/food composition"
Pesto and Cashew Damper Scrolls "Composition - too tight"
Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups "Photo/food composition"
Chocolate Jaffa Cornets "Photo/food composition"
Flourless Chocolate Cake "Dull/Unclear Image"
So, are they really that terrible? I've submitted over 12 photos and every single one has been rejected. Sometimes it makes me want to scream. Just saying.
