Q. What camera equipments do you use for your photos?

I use Canon EOS 50D with a kit lens 28-135mm, Macro lens EF-S 60mm, 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II USM, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens, Canon EOS 7D, Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT, D-Lite RX 4 2-Light To Go Kit, Lightsphere Collapsible Pro Kit, Background Support System, Premium Heavyweight Solid Muslin, Tripods, remote trigger, misc items and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5/Photoshop Element 6 (I know, super old)i am in the process of establishing a professional photography studio (WIP).

Q. Can you please take a look of my gallery and give me feedback?

I am very busy with my own projects, I am afraid the answer is no. However I do acknowledge to all my loyal viewers who supports me work on the daily basis and I am always happy to hear from you! Ps. I do get super busy from time to time, my apology in advance that I do not answer all the comments.

Q. Do you use photoshop to edit your photos?

I use photoshop mostly for image cropping and add my name to my images. Outside of these two elements, I do not manipulate my photos.

Q. Do you make all the food we see in your gallery?

99% of the food in my food gallery are made by me. They include from concept, styling, cooking, baking, taking photos to post editing. I own ALL the props for my food photos as well as my still life photos. For the store-bought food, you will find (in description box) a disclaimer in parentheses.

I do not make miniature foods. Please don't write me and ask me to make certain food/dessert. I do not take request. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME FOR RECIPES & I do not have a YouTube account. If time allows, I am always glad to include instructions/tips and recipes. It is important to remember that I am a food photographer/food stylist (not a cook/professional baker). A helpful tip - if you need a specific recipe, chances are you can easily find them on line, i use Google and/or YouTube for my go-to helps. They are great learning tools and they have helped me immensely for anything i need help with (recipes included). Again, anything you wish to learn, all you need to do is Google the info you need.

Q. Do you own a restaurant or have worked in the food/restaurant industry?

Neither. I am a mom who enjoys cooking/baking (self-taught) for my family and friends.

Q. Are you a professional photographer? I really love the way you showcase your food!

I am a 100% self-taught photographer. I have been taking photos of nature for about 2 1/2 years and food photography for about one year. I am a food photographer/food stylist. I do not have a food blog.

Q. What do you do with all the food you baked/cooked? Do you eat them yourself?

It depends, I will eat the food I prepared as long as there are no dairy products. I share my food with family and friends.

Q. I really like your work, I have a project at school, can I interview you?

Please note me, if time is on my side, I will consider it.

Q. May I use/reblog your photos?

No, you MAY NOT. All images are ©copyright theresahelmerphotography. You may NOT use, replicate, manipulate, or modify images without my permission. All Rights Reserved

Q. What are your likes and dislikes?

I like cats, rain, ocean, wombat, flowers, music, smiles, coffee, man, learning, sharing, salt on watermelon, great movies, great food and nice/kind people. I am a firm believer on giving back (as often as I can). I do not tolerate abusive or disrespectful comments. Constructive criticism is always welcome. I am here on dA to make friends, not enemies, if you are rude to me for no reasons at all, You will hear from me and/or I will block you.

Lastly attention to all art thieves - if you steal my images, i will treat you like thugs. i will not be nice to you, period! Don't steal my shit ever!!

Q. Are you a gardener?

Yes, I am. I have a beautiful garden that I work very hard maintaining on the daily basis. I am well-versed in botany, if you have a flower that you have tried to find out the name but unable. I'll be glad to assist (But you must try to find out on your own first).

Sorry to burst your reality, "green thumb" is a myth!!! I feel frustrated when people often told me that I have a green thumb! I don't. The only thing I do for a beautiful garden is that I take good care of it everyday. That's my secret (yours as well) for a beautiful garden.

Thank you,
~ Theresa

Hello!  My name is Kate, I’m 21, and I need a car so I can work, and get back on my feet.  I have so many ideas to help me be self-sufficient, but I need leverage.  I need your help, Deviantart!  Please donate 1$ to the cause of The Great Kate Escape!  Escape from homelessness!  1$ helps more than you know, so give what you can.  I have checkpoints on certain goals, and I’ll post a video of something the community decides what funny, or scary thing to do on camera!  People must post what they would want me to do on camera in the journal description and I’ll tally up the vote. 

If you can’t donate then spread the link, please. <3
