Portland Food Photographer- Donuts

Portland Food Photographer

Doughnuts? or Donuts?  Which is your preference?  Mine is donuts.  But regardless your spelling preference these little round babies are delicious.  Who doesn’t love a good donut?  If you’re in the pro-donut clan, today is your lucky day- it’s National Donut Day!  Now, I know you can get a free donut at Krispie Kreme or Dunkin today (I don’t even think we have a Dunkin?) but, if you want to celebrate the holiday correctly, skip the freebies and muster up some patience (because there will be a line) and go get a Blue Star Donut.  Or if you’re in the NE Portland area- swing by Pip’s Original Dougnuts.  …Notice Blue Star goes with “donut” and Pip’s uses “doughnuts” ha!

My donut photos are from Blue Star.  So did I make these donuts?  The answer is definitely, no.  I don’t see that as cheating because this blog is about food photography, not baking.  While I do love sharing recipes, I’m better off talking to you about composition and props than how to create the perfect donut.  Speaking of props- a shout out to Beam and Anchor for the beautiful rolling pin that you’ll see and AHeriloom for the cake stand.  So this post is simply just for fun.  I had the donuts (lemon poppyseed) on hand for a different project and I could not just stand by and not do a mini photo shoot.  So this is just some fun donut photos to get awake your taste buds for National Donut Day.  Enjoy!
