banana muffins and food photography {a guest post by katie}

This banana muffin recipe has been a family favorite for quite a while. They always fill the kitchen+dining room with a sense of home, and often times attract my family to see what smells so good. I love making them. I also love taking pictures of them- and food in general. I've found the best way to photograph food is-
a) use natural light, and 
b) use natural light. 
Incandescent and florescent ruins a food photograph, and I mean ruins it. I normally use our prettiest dishes, set them on a solid surface, and get it as close to the window as possible. This = normal looking food.
