FAQ Contact

I have a question about a recipe

Hopefully I have an answer for you. Not that I mind getting fun emails .. but it's best to leave the question in the comment section of the recipe. That way anyone else with your question .. and there will be another person .. can save themselves a bit of trouble

I have a blog .. can we do a link exchange?

I only link to sites that I love to read & visit regularly. But .. if you'd like to email me or leave a comment pointing to your blog .. please do! I love discovering all of the amazing blogs .. writers .. photographers .. and very cool people that are out there

Why was my comment removed from VeggiesByCandlelight?

This little piece of the internet is a place to swap inspiration and ideas. Constructive criticism and debate is always welcome .. but if a comment is thoughtless or offensive .. I'll remove it. Put it another way .. if it's something you wouldn't say as a guest in our home .. it's probably best not said here either.

I've noticed errors on the site 

Thank-you .. yes .. I'm sure there are .. and they drive me crazy when I notice them as well. If you would .. please send me a note through the contact form and I'll get it fixed.


Website Design


Who designed your site?

I did (and it's gone through a number of iterations). Mostly because my career is in IT .. and I'm a coding geek at heart

What publishing software do you use and who hosts your site?

The site uses the Rosemary theme created by Solo Pine (their customer service is incredible). It also makes use of a cloud delivery network for performance optimization. It is privately hosted.



FAQ Photography

What camera do you use?

I use a Canon EOS 5D Mark III  with a Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens for the majority of my photos and a Canon 100mm f/2.8 lens for close-up shots. All of the editing is done with a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop.

My advice if you're just getting started? Don't get too hung up on buying something expensive .. any camera can take a good photo. I've come to discover your perspective is a hundred times more important than your equipment

Where do you get your props?

They come from all over. Target .. Anthropologie .. IKEA .. gifts from friends .. antique stores .. and Etsy Shops. The backgrounds I use come from places like my father's workshop .. Erickson Woodworks and Crate & Barrel.

What kind of lighting do you use?

I shoot exclusively with natural light .. on a table by our large patio door. Nothing fancy .. a white sheet as a light diffusor .. and a simple piece of foam board as a reflector.

Can I use one of your photos on my site?

All photos on VeggiesByCandlelight are copyrighted, which means that they shouldn't be reused without my permission. That being said .. if you're excited about a recipe and want to tell your friend about it on your site .. thank-you! I appreciate it .. and you may.

Please make sure you're only using one photo at a time and clearly linking that picture back to veggiesbycandlelight.com.
