Food Blogs with Best Photography

Specifically looking for food blogs that concentrate on dining out. I'm interested in this because I'm an avid foodie and photographer. I dine out all the time and am looking to improve on my food photography. Attached below are 2 shots I took the other day at brunch.

Anyway, in regards to the blog it doesn't matter on the location. Just looking for great food blogs with wonderful photos of food while dining out. Thanks!

  1. I recommend http://blog.ruhlman.com/. Michael Ruhlman is an author and has written several food related books. His wife is a professional photographer and takes all the photos for the website.

    Donna Ruhlman also has her own blog on the photography of food. I think this is exactly what you are looking for.

      I strongly second the nomination. Even though Ruhlman writes more about food preparation than dining out experiences, his wife's accompanying photos are simply amazing and not to be missed.

      We're looking to buy a few for the kitchen in our new home!

    2. Nice pics Ken. I especially like the way the light hits the sauce in the second picture.

      1. I like http://www.skilletdoux.com/

        don't know how it rates compared to others

        1. Robyn Lee is one of the best young food photographers I have encountered. Her blog, The Girl Who Ate Everything, is also one of the most engagingly-written I follow. You can also find her work on Serious Eats.

          1. One food blog I like and he takes pictures of various places he dines... is Austin Bush's "Real Thai"

                Perhaps not the best photography, but great reviews all his dining experiences with photos of every course, and then some.

                  the photography isn't good but the reviews are so detailed he almost doesn't need pictures

                    1. No one here seems to have mentioned Penny De Los Santos, who is the Senior Photo Editor at Saveur Magazine (the National Geographic of Food). Her portfolio site is pretty spectacular http://www.pennydelossantos.com/ but you can check out her blog which is more "casual" than her official portfolio site. http://pennydelossantos.wordpress.com/ She's also an pretty awesome person.

                      You can also check all the food porn sites like Foodgawker, Tastespotting, and my most recent find of Tasteologie. They all have pretty food pics.

                      1. I really enjoyed checking out this one while I was temporarily stationed in Malaysia. I still check it out every now and then

                        1. Travels from around the world, plus a lot of Southern California. A real foodie in my opinion.
