thanks for the compliments on my blog sheeta! bit really, I'm not half as good a photographer as some of my other fellow food-bloggers! basically, I read my camera manual entirely, and played around wih light, aperture, focus and macro settings, and have improved over time:)

I'm not a professional, so really can't advise you much, but all I can say is lighting, angles and focus can make a photo look beautiful, and you can use some post-editing too! a good camera would be the first important step though!hope this helps:)
