#foodtographyworkshop

You guys, I can’t tell you enough how much fun I had at the #foodtographyworkshop! Ann Arbor was the perfect little town to host this food blogger get-together and Sarah Fennel (Broma Bakery) is packed full of knowledge and insight. She was certainly the “hostess with the mostest” as she and her assistants provided a wonderful weekend for us, and I’ll tell you what, we never went hungry!

Sarah is the face behind Broma Bakery and if you have ever gotten to lay eyes on her food photography then you will understand why I was so excited to make this trip! Not only is her photography (and knowledge about photography) inspiring, but also her keen eye for food styling and baking AMAZING cakes. She was fun and light-hearted and made everyone feel at home. In fact, I think everyone felt at home amongst one another because you were never alone being the “weird person” standing on their chair at a restaurant to get the perfect picture of the plates below you. Pictures were snapped, boomerangs were done until perfected, and food was typically eaten cold by the time you were done photographing it but it didn’t matter because you had a happy tummy and wonderful company around you.

I’m not going to spill all the beans of everything we learned, but I am so excited to put everything into action! And OH MY GOODNESS she taught me how to properly use my Canon 6D! Me and Betty (the 6D) weren’t getting along too well so I kept defaulting back to my Nikon that I was more comfortable with. I still love my Nikon, but Betty and I are pretty tight now… you could say that its gotten pretty serious between us.

Here are a few of my favorite snaps from the weekend that I hope you all enjoy! If you ever get the opportunity to gather with fellow food bloggers and photographers jump right on it – you won’t be disappointed!

PS – see if you can tell the difference in the photos from when I switched from the Nikon 5300 to the Canon 6D 🙂
