Hi, Fiesta Friends!
Remember Daylight Saving Time starts this very Sunday, for those of you who live in the US.
We’re losing an hour of sleep, hey-ho!
But! We’re also gaining an hour’s worth of natural light for food photography. And for that, I’d say hurray!
I’ve been cursing (only in my head) the lack of light each time I photograph my dinner. By the time I come home from work, I only have a couple of hours to work with before the shadows of the night creep in.
Natural light makes a huge difference in your photos! Take a look at the two photos below. I’m sure you can pick which one uses natural and which one relies on artificial lighting.
After editing and such, the difference may not be easily detected to the untrained eye, but trust me, I had to work harder to bring the one using artificial lighting (the second one) to life. The other one only needed a little bit of cropping and rotating.
So I’m excited to have that extra hour.
The simple things that make us food bloggers happy ?
And Now It’s Time For Features!

I too am looking forward to DST! That won’t fix the poor lighting in my little apartment however…but it will sure help! Have a great weekend and thanks for hosting.
It’ll definitely help. I put a table right next to a window to get as much light as possible.

We’re opposite here in Australia our daylight savings will end soon for our Winter.
That makes sense since you’re on the opposite site of the globe. Enjoy your fall weather!
Hi, Angie! I always get very disoriented with DST, I think we should just leave it in effect one time, and then longer evening light will come naturally, hehe. Thank you for hosting another great Fiesta Friday, and thanks to you and Pauline for featuring my St. Patrick’s fusion menu. This week I am sharing #35 Camarones a la Diabla – Deviled Shrimp. Enjoy your weekend!
It does take me several days to get used to it; that first Monday is tough. But after that, I’m fine.
Another GREAT party – THANK YOU for hosting. I brought my SWEET GARLICKY PORK CHOPS, CAJUN BARRAMUNDI with REMOULADE SAUCE and PEACH BLUEBERRY CRISPS to the party. I hope you have a FANTASTIC week.
Thanks for sharing, Tamy!

We’ve got a couple more weeks before we get daylight saving. But I can’t wait! The extra light for food photos makes such a difference.
Thank you for including my Tortilla in the round up. Have a great week xx
I love that Spanish tortilla. Similar to my favorite frittata, with a little twist. Sounds delicious!
