Washington Post food photography – August edition
A lot (but not all) of the food photography I do is for the Washington Post. I’m lucky enough to do some studio photography to illustrate the recipes and cover stories that run in the paper. And I also get to travel all over the metropolitan DC area for the paper’s various dining reviews–the Washington Post Magazine Sunday dining reviews, the Weekend section’s $20 Diner and the Food section’s First Bite reviews. So I’ve gathered some of my favorite recent images from such fun new restaurants like The Salt Line, Millie’s, Chicken + Whiskey in DC, Flamant and True Food Kitchen in Maryland and Hummingbird in Virginia. Oh, and if you’re not following me on Instagram (@deblindsey) please do! Lots of these photos and various other food photos show up there on a daily basis.
