Welcome to the MLC
We have everything here, whether you are just getting started or a seasoned pro. Our tutorials and tips are always free!
A couple of months ago, we released the Essential Food Photography Action Set. This set is geared toward Food Bloggers and Food Photographers. As Food Bloggers ourselves we use this set every day and it makes life incredibly more easy around here. I am able to post on average 3-5 times per week and I attribute this is quick editing.
I thought it would be fun to take a look at some before and afters from the last couple months of using this new set.

If you are a Food Blogger or thinking of becoming one, you should know that it is essential for you to have to best possible images. There are a million food blogs out there and most of them are on point. If you want to be competitive online then your images need to stand out. Sites like Foodgawker.com and TasteSpotting.com have very strict guidelines but are essential to the growth of your blog . We are consistently accepted on those sites (with the exception of three submissions [boo]) and have seen tremendous growth on the food blog as a result. Three months in we are sitting at 10,576 pageviews for the last 30 days. Much of this traffic is coming from Foodgawker.com and TasteSpotting.com.
I am a professional photographer and my images still need to be edited. If you shoot in RAW (which you should be doing) then you need a basic clean up of your image. This can be accomplished with the Image Cleaner Action. It mimics the camera RAW filter but allows you to make selective adjustments on each layer, giving you more control. This is the most powerful Action in the set.

Happy Food Blogging!
