It's time to announce the winners of the longest running and favourite photography event amongst food bloggers - DMBLGIT. Many food bloggers use professional cameras for food photography these days and as expected this month too saw some extremely stunning pictures. Choosing the top three is certainly a tough thing to do, so I invited over a talented team of three photographer/food bloggers. Let me introduce them to you and do hop over and see their work.
I met Thorsten on flickr. Thorsten Kraska is based in Bonn, Germany and shares his photgoraphy on flickr as well as his personal website. He started a group on flickr called the food photography club and offers constructive criticism on some of the pictures too. He also writes a food blog called My2Penn'orth. I have tried a couple of recipes and can vouch for their goodness too! Go over and drool.
Veronica is based in Switzerland and another wonderful photographer and friend whom I met through flickr! She blogs at Edes es Keseru. She experiments with natural settings and shadows and cooks great food too. Again, I speak from experience as I have tried out her recipe as well. Check her out, please.
Karen Low is a baking/cooking blogger from Sydney, Australia who loves desserts and classic recipes. She loves photography and admits that she enjoys doing 'food porn' :). She is a three times winner of DMBLGIT herself and blogs at Citrus and Candy. Her pictures will make you fall in love with cooking!
Do you hear trumpets blowing? That is because the winners of the September 2010 edition are just being rolled out! CONGRATULATIONS, super six! I will be sending you your badges very soon. Do adorn your blogs with them.
