When sending pictures to Cooking Louisiana please follow the simple
Taking pictures of objects: Take several pictures from different
angles. Fill the picture with
as much of the object as you can (don't get too far away). Know the
focusing limits of you camera when taking a close shot. If it's too close
it will come out blurry.
Taking pictures of people in groups: Take shots from different
angles and different distances. If the group is doing something special
such as boiling seafood get them to stand around the pot or the food that
is being served so everyone knows the event taking place.
From a digital camera:
Be sure pictures are no larger than about
kb. Email them to me or send me a 3.5" disk or CD by mail. JPEG
pictures are preferred but not mandatory.
From a standard (film type) camera:
Have your pictures developed as you normally
would. Send the prints via regular mail or scan the pictures and email
them, or have your developer make a CD of the pictures. It's your
I will do the editing of the pictures. Please
don't try to edit them yourself. If you want something not be shown just
tell me what it is and I'll take it out. If I can't use the picture(s)
I'll let you know.
I will return pictures to you if you want
them, but please enclose a self addressed stamped envelope along with the
pictures. Same holds true for floppy disks and CDs. If I don't have the
proper postage you don't get them back, sorry.
