I am so glad that I have a background in computers because SEO is not easy. For those who don’t know, SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It’s what gets you to the top of a Google search. One of the things that I can control are link backs back to my site. So, I am trying to take advantage of every link back to http://www.photography-by-jerry.com that I can get. Here is an example:

I was humbled to be asked to be a guest on Simi’s Tumericnspice blog.
Here is her introduction:A couple of months back, Bart Luczak of K&L food blog started a food photo critique club, a gathering of like minded people who love to share their passion for food photography and a great place to learn. Some of the members are professional photographers and some of them chefs – most of them masters in their own field. I am so glad to be part of it as I have learned a lot and it is a lot of fun. Jerry is a professional still life and product photographer specializing in food photography. He is part of the food photography club and I have learned some valuable lessons and gotten some great tips from him. Jerry has a very keen eye, and trust me, there is not a teeny tiny shadow that he will miss. I think he is the tech wiz as far as photography is concerned and he knows the science behind the art. I think some of us (and that totally includes me) are driving him nuts with our endless questions. Hope we don’t drive you away! Thanks Jerry and thanks to all of you at the photo club for the critique, feedback and encouragement.
My first lesson was: there is always one hero and that is your subject – food! Am never going to forget that lesson. There is so much to learn from him that I thought it would be great to have him over at TnS. Welcome Jerry, hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoy having you over.

My stylist Michael Giletto came over for what my wife calls “a play date.” He had some ideas that he wanted to work on and I just love shooting so, I was game for anything. Anything that is, until he started to explain his idea. He went shopping in Home Depot for this one.
He wanted to put pork on door knobs. I smiled and said “sure” and listened to his idea. It sounded insane but, creatives often are so, we went with it.
Well, I think its the most creative thing that either of us ever came up with. It only got tweaked a little from the original concept. Most of the effort was spent on the reflection in the knob.
Here are some other shots we did that day. A really productive day if I do say so myself.
Don’t you just love it when everything falls into place? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I find it very rewarding when I see the finished products made from my photography. Here is a catalog that I photographed. I think that the designer did a great job. http://www.lostloonfarms.com/content/LLF-Catalog-Final.pdf
These products happen to be absolutely delicious and I am thankful that I was able to keep all of the opened jars. Check out Lost Loon Farms and give their jams a try.
Happy Chanukah and Merry Christmas.
