Here’s a quick post … I’ve been pretty side-tracked from the blog the past week as I’ve been busy working on my new food photography book. I’ve got a few tutorials planned, and a whole bunch of food photo-shoots over the next few weeks, so I’ll post more goodies, tips, tricks and randomness in the near future. In the meanwhile, enjoy this delicious plate of pesto fettuccini pasta topped with basil and pine nuts. Super yum! :)

    Hi Nic,

    Another great shot, strange question for you. What software do you use for your tutorials? Jing, Camtasia? Any advise?

    Thanks (if yo have time) :)

      I use QuickTime X to record the screen-cast, then edit in Premiere Pro (to I add music, text, etc).
