Food Photography Communities-- Inspirational Help To Food Bloggers And A Vanilla Cappuccino Cookie Recipe


Whatever the situation may be there is always something one has to do in the kitchen. Isn’t it?...  Breakfast, snacks, dinner, dessert, freezer storage, freeze, defrost, bake, clean the oven and the best thing of all “Dish-washing”?! :)  

You see; I'm not a big fan of dish-washing. This is the only task that I don't enjoy much around the kitchen. And I could say I have a like / dislike  relationship with it.
 


Are you too?


Particularly after preparing and making cookies!
And the baking is finished.  A few sheet pans, bowls, measuring cups, spoons, flour everywhere... and a couple dozen of 'Irresistible mouth-watering Cookies' :) It becomes a sweet sacrifice at the end of the process! 


Yes, this is a big-pleasant-world full of amazing flavors and aromas waiting for us...
 





To be taste.

And even better— to be share.


Yes, we 'food bloggers' love to share our creations. 

With a gorgeous photo! I believe this is probably the most important part of our journey as food bloggers. Sharing what we made and photographed.


So, we choose a recipe, we made it, we photographed it, we click the publish post button and we wait...

and wait.... for our photo to be seen for all the foodie lovers around the world. But sometimes it seems that is not getting the attention that really deserves.



We need to make people aware of our passion for food. We need to socialize with other food bloggers. But above all this we need practical and useful resources to help us grow and establish online presence in our niche as food bloggers.
  
But what can we do?


We can share our food photos in different communities!


There are wonderful food photography communities where food bloggers get together and share their delectable photos. I strongly recommend that you take advantage of these free services. It will also gives you a lot of inspiration. Particularly if you enjoy food photography! So don't be shy and show the world about what you do in “The Kitchen”.


This is a list of favorites Food Photography Communities  that I really enjoy. You probably know some of them or probably don’t. Do you have any other online sources where you show and share your passion? If so feel free to share your favorites in the comments section. Here they are:
