Does the food photography on MyLifeRunsOnFood.com make you hungry? There’s no reason to visually starve anymore, since I’m happy to announce the launch of the Food Photography page. Randomly selected images published from previous stories are now for sale, and the page will be frequently updated. If you don’t see a favorite image not listed, please email with a link to the image, and we can discuss details. Photograph sizes start at 4×6 inches. They’re printed on Kodak Professional white paper with a finish choice of lustre, matte or glossy. Visit the Food Photography page to select images, ordering information and details.
Last autumn, Easy Canvas Print asked if I wanted a free 8×8 inch print in exchange for reviewing their product. Of course, I agreed. The ordering process was simple.
I choose my favorite image, the black-eye peas, and uploaded to their site. Make sure the image is between 180 and 240 dpi for a good quality print. As a designer, I prefer 300 dpi for a sharper quality. The next step was choosing a border and hanging option. The standard wall hanger was chosen, because it looks best displayed on the wall. In the next step, three options are available for border styles: Mirror, Image or color. The mirror border reflects the image around the canvas. The image border allows the picture to extend over the trim to wrap around the canvas edges (make sure there’s at least one to two inches more than the trim size of the image). The last option is the choice of a single solid color for the border. The final step allows for color adjustment and retouching. The color adjustment includes none, black and white, or a warm sepia color. Retouching ranges from none to minor to major. Keep in mind, the more options chosen, the cost increases. If possible, keep the costs low by doing the color and retouching yourself.
After finalizing the order, the canvas image promptly arrived. It was wrapped in paper and enclosed in plastic. In the future, more 8×8 inch sizes are being ordered to create a group of food photos to display around the kitchen.
Here’s the contest announcement. Being an unselfish food blogger, I wanted to share my lucky deal with one random (lucky!) visitor chosen to receive a FREE 8×8 inch canvas print from East Canvas Print of one of the photos listed on the Food Photography page.
