|Food Blog Forum Reception at Whole Foods in Bayhill.|
I was so happy to find this seminar in my own backyard and I was surprised to find several bloggers from out of town, out of state and out of this country! I met Julie Cove, author of The Alkaline Sisters, a blog about alkaline diets. She's from British Columbia and can you believe she is writing a guest post for Kris Carr's Blog! I also met Asha Pagdiwalla, professional food photographer and author of Fork Spoon Knife. She's originally from India and now living in New York City.
After listening to professional food photographer Helene Dujardin speak and demonstrate her style in food styling and photography, it made me realize that I do have an interest in food photography. I mean I do take multiple shots when I shoot for this blog, even though it's with an old point and shoot. I am always concerned with lighting and positioning of food. Sometimes I spend up to 20 minutes messing with it and if I don't get a good photo, I don't post! I just wait until I make the meal again and shoot again.
So I will take Helene's advice and buy a "big girl camera". Time to take a visit to the camera store and start looking into a camera that will take my photographs up a notch or two :)

If I can find another local blogger who wants to split the gas driving up from Orlando, I will seriously start making plans to go!
