On Saturday I attended thefood blog forum in LA to pick up new ideas about blog writing and meet more people within the food-blogging community. The sessions were incredibly helpful and it was a blast meeting up with new friends. There were 6 sessions throughout the day and my personal favorite wasDiane and Todd’s session about food photography. They are such a warm-hearted couple who gave a wealth of information and tips. A large portion of their session focused on lighting, which I’ve come to learn is the most important element of photography. We also had the opportuntiy to hear Jadendiscuss authenticity and diversity when creating/writing a blog. Then the very talented duo, Adam and Matt, hosted a session about food styling and food photography. Adam said that every time he plates food (even if it’s for his own dinner at home) he gets excited. I love that!
It was so great to catch up with new friends and meet several other LA area bloggers. Being in a room with such creative thinkers was incredibly energizing. It reminded me of the my early days at music school – you could literally feel the excitement and creativity twirling in the air.
