Food Photography Day

Here at the Iowa Turkey Federation, we have more turkey recipes than we know what to do with.

But, we know that our visual world wants PHOTOS of those recipes!  A photo can easily be pinned on Pinterest and shared on Facebook.

And so, we’re working hard to get those photos.  Which is more complicated than it sounds.cooking turkey recipes

First, there is recipe testing, usually done in our homes, with our families as the taste testers.  Once the recipe is perfected, we have to make it one more time, style it, and hire a photographer to get a very professional looking, appetizing photograph.

We are working with the talented Becca, from Photography by Becca.  She usually does weddings, children and family photos, but we’ve convinced her to branch out into food photography, and she’s doing a wonderful job, don’t you think?

With 5 chefs (Gretta, Sheila, Katie, Karen Davis: Taste of Home Chef, and an Iowa State University student) we were able to cook and photograph 38 turkey recipes in one whirlwind day!  It was so much fun, so much work, and so delicious.

We’ll be adding these recipes to the website over the next few weeks, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of what you have to look forward to!
