Is there a 'how-to' guide to get started in this? I keep submitting to tastespotting, foodgawker, and photograzing, to be continually rejected again and again. What am I doing wrong here? Are these sites for the food elite only? Is it typically hard for a newbie to break-in to this club?
I'm under no illusions that my photos are amazing, great, or even really all that good. I have a 5+ year old point and shoot and virtually no technical photography know-how. I think I've had some okay results though, despite those things. Are there some secrets that I don't yet know? Have I not yet passed the freshman hazing that I didn't know existed? Aren't they, above all else, about the food?
