Life’s been busy… yeah, going to school along with a full time job can really mess up my special “blog time”. I have been busier over the weekends – good kind of busy; I’ve been going to the Institute of Culinary Education since the beginning of the year and to tell you the truth, I have been cooking up a lot of stuff there! In the upcoming posts, I’ll be sure to share some of the specific culinary skills I’ve acquired and some amazing new techniques I have learnt.
The other love in my life is clicking what I love cooking. And, yes, there’s a school for that too!! A few weeks ago I attended a special workshop - food styling and photography at ICE. Since then, I haven’t been able to stop playing with my camera! This workshop was such an eye opener for me. I have been trying my hand at food styling and photography on my own since I started writing my blog, but I never knew there was so much more to it! In the three days of that workshop, I discovered that all those little buttons on my camera can do crazy wonderful things and was trained in the black art of Food Styling. Thanks to the gurus Matt Noel, Jim Peterson and Laurie Knoop, my concoctions never looked this good.
Today, I’m sharing my initial foray into professional-level food photography and styling. A picture speaks a thousand words; you bet … these mouth-watering concoctions need no recipes!
