“When you know better you do better.”

“When you learn, teach, when you get, give.” - I am a firm believer in this. I have given out many memberships to different individuals that I feel deserve my donation. Who knows! It can be you next time...

Hi my friends,

As some of you know, I have been working with Jelly Belly Candy Company for the past couple of months. Yesterday, they posted photos I took for their spring collection on three different websites. Please see links:

1.  - The White Chocolate Jelly Belly Lollipops

2. - The images i took are - White Chocolate Jelly Belly Lollipops in glass containers & The Chocolate Ganache Filled Strawberry with Jelly Belly (these are tutorial images)

3. - I think you guys can tell the images i took...

It would mean so much to me if you could stop by these sites and "like" the photo! Leave a comment if you visited the sites on here. Thank you so much. This really means a lot to me 
Have a beautiful day

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 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 and 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 DO NOT ASK ME FOR RECIPES & I do not have YouTube/FB accounts. If time allows, I am always glad to include both instructions/tips and recipes. A helpful tip - if you need a specific recipe, chances are they are on line, use Google or YouTube for your go-to help. That's how I learned.

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.

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 ęcopyright theresahelmer. 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
