Going all the way back to the days when I ate McDonald's, I remember watching the mouth watering Big Mac on my TV screen, salivating for the hot fluffy toasted buns, the succulent meat patty and the crunchy lettuce, topped with a side of crispy fries. Most often than not, I was always met with disappointment when I got my meal. It never looks the way it does on screen, it's camera magic and I have developed a crush, a deep appreciation for people who know how to make food look so good.

What Katie Ate
A foodie blog based in Sydney, What Katie Ate captures the latest eats in the city and captures food from interesting angles. I'm still an amateur in photography (just purchased my first Cannon 600) but I can appreciate the lighting, back drop and the props she uses to bring out her subject. She's a full time photographer, check this site out for recipes, restaurants and inspiration for your next meal.
A Table for Two
Sometimes, it's not just about pretty pictures, and the best photographers know this. Food and travel blogger Billy Law is great at making food look delicious. His pictures are so crisp you can feel the texture of the meals he captures. If you want an honest review of Sydney restos, he's your go-to guy.
Cupcakes and Cashmere
An American and international favourite, Cupcakes and Cashmere wins me over with her creativity and presentation. It really was love at first post with the talented Emily. I love how she can turn the most simple recipes to dishes served with style. If you haven't seen the site yet, you'll want to see it for entertaining ideas, recipes and a dose of fashion.
