As a food photographer and food lover, blogging has been a thing I've been interested in for some time. The question is, what will I blog about? Where's the hook? I'm a vegan, but there's a gazillion vegan bloggers out there with more creativity in the kitchen than I. Finding my voice was a challenge two years ago when I set out to write my first blog, which only yielded two or three posts. But now I have at least 50% of the skill set required for great food blogging — kickass photography skills.
That's where I'm going to start. I'm not sure where it's going to take me, but I'll use this blog to share my projects, and hopefully some recipes along the way. To start out, I've given myself a little goal — to photograph everything I eat for lunch this week.
So, today, I ate this cucumber avocado roll. I went out this morning, armed with my camera, to the Union Square Greenmarket with the plan to not only buy delicious produce, but also to photograph it. Except it was about 9,000° out today, so I opted instead to grab my food and run as fast I could for the nearest air conditioned store. The idea of cooking anything in my sweltering kitchen seemed unappealing, so I grabbed some sushi from the nearby Whole Foods before jumping back on the subway. I finished off the meal with a big bowl of market-fresh blueberries, which I realized perhaps should have made it into the photo for this to be an entirely accurate representation of my lunch, but hey, I'm still figuring out my methodology here.
Until tomorrow afternoon.
