Part II: Where to Share Your Food Photos and/or Find Culinary Visual Inspiration
1. A Few Words About Tastespotting, Plus Other Places to Share Your Food Photos and Get Inspired
If you’re like me and love to think, write, and lust over inspiring photos of food, you’ll be sad to hear that the influential food porn site, Tastespotting is no more.
If you’re a food blogger, columnist, or home cook this news hits especially hard as the photos on Tastespotting probably launched nearly as many posts, columns, meals, and food articles as ships that sailed for Helen of Troy.
Also, word is that the folks at Recipes2Share are also expanding the functionality of their Food Gallery over the next few days to help fill the Tastespotting niche.
Alas, the future of the site Food Porn Watch is a bit shaky, but if they get help with their hosting they will remain another valuable resource for food photographers looking to showcase their work.
Looking to test your photographic mettle against other online food photogs? Still Life With is the place to find out what their latest Flickr foodie photo challenges are and how to contribute.

Don’t forget to read the recent print issues of such food magazines as Saveur, Bon Appetit, and Food & Wine to see what visual trends are emerging in food photography.
