Sweden Photography Workshop & 5 Basic Photography Tips (ft. SORTED)

5 Basic Photography Tips

When I decided to take my gap year (not a gap yah) last summer I didn’t think I would be travelling at all! No trips to Bali to ‘find myself’ or backpacking around the world. Somehow though, I’ve ended up spending a month in New York with plans to travel to Berlin next month, then Sweden in July…

That last trip is one I’m particularly excited about – I’ll be joining the dream-team of Eva and Carey who are hosting a Food Styling, Photography and Portrait Workshop in Sweden along with Elenore. If you’d like more info about the workshop you can check out the details and book yourself a ticket here. 

If you’re just looking for some basics to get you started, then this post is for you! One of the things I (and probably loads of food bloggers) are asked about a lot is food photography. It can be intimidating picking up a DSLR and trying to figure out how to use it. I teamed up with my friends at SORTED to make a fun video for you to quickly explain the basics. I’ve also added stills for each tip with a written explanation below. Let me know if you enjoyed the vid & tips and if so I’ll work on some more Tip-Type posts (also feel free to suggest things you’d like me to write tutorials on).

You may have gauged from my instagram feed that I’m in New York at the moment! I’ve been eating a whoooole lot of ice cream  – 4 different places in one week, and I have 3 weeks left! I swear Morganstern’s has been recommended to me at least 10 times now, so that’s my next stop don’t worry.

Meanwhile a 6th floor, walk-up apartment means that a) I double check that I have EVERYTHING I need before walking out the door (no way am I walking back up if I do forget something) and b) Tell myself that it’s therefore okay, maybe even required, that I’m eating ice cream all the time.
