Hello, my name is Jodi Boatman.

I’m a Columbus, Ohio based artist, photographer, retoucher, wife and dog mom to Jack and Karl. I own a retouching business, Brilliant Pixel Imaging. In my spare time, I love cooking and trying new recipes.

My life goals are to have 3 goats, 5 chickens, 2 alpacas and 1 peacock and the land to raise them.

I hope this blog inspires you feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media!



Food Photography Tools



Fuji X-T2 - I started my photography career shooting a Mamiya RB67 and 4X5 cameras. The transition to using digital cameras was not easy. It wasn’t until I purchased the Fuji X-T2 that I fell in love with making images again. Do not let the small size of this little buddy fool you, it takes amazing photographs. I originally bought this camera to travel with and it has quickly become the only camera I use. It is light, intuitive for us old timers who like to turn knobs and sharp!

Fujinon 23mm F2 - I am a fan of fixed lenses for my cameras. I use the 22mm for wide shots where I want to see more of the background.

Fujinon 35mm F2 - This is my go to lens. I use this lens most of all in my food and travel photography.

Fujinon 50mm F2 - I use this lens to get close to my subject. It is a terrific lens for details.

YuHan Large Capacity Multi-function Waterproof Anti-shock SLR/DSLR Camera Bag. I love the functionality of this bag for travel and it’s a great price! I travelled Newfoundland Canada with this bag for two week last fall. If you know anything about Newfoundland, the weather is unpredictable and I got caught in the rain several times. The bag comes with a cover and it kept all of my equipment dry.
