Blogger Questions Martha Stewart’s ‘Food Porn’ Skills

The Internet really is the great equalizer. Today’s Exhibit Z – a Monday night post by LA Times food blogger Jenn Harris.

LATJennHarris_LogoHarris, host of Internet radio show Forkin’ Amazing and a self-professed “bacon schmootz lover,” spent some time scrolling through those contentious Martha Stewart food photos. In case you missed it, Stewart has been getting flak from her Twitter followers for the generally poor quality of her iFood photography, and Harris is now right there with these critics:

Some celebrities hire people to tweet for them, but after scrolling her feed, it’s pretty safe to say a professional had nothing to do with it. Most of the photos are poorly lit, which is something we’ve all experienced when trying to take a photo at a dark restaurant. But most are just plain awful. Some are blurry, some look neon and in some you really can’t tell what you’re looking at, no matter how long you look.

Last month, Stewart took some heat for comments she made about the Internet during a Bloomberg TV interview (“Who are these bloggers?”). Those bloggers, Ms. Stewart, are some of your harshest critics. And they’re not going away anytime soon.
