Hello devoted follower, casual reader, food porn seeker and random passer-byer. For those of you that aren’t already aware, things have been quite busy of late for me, which usually means that blogging activity dips considerably.
For what it’s worth, the blog hasn’t officially gone into hiatus. However, I thought I’d give you an update regarding where things are currently at, as well as a few things to come in the near future.
Whilst there will be some nice images the follow, if you’re after something more substantial such as a restaurant review or recipe, now might be the best time to turn away and wait for the next post. Otherwise, please proceed to find out more.
A lot has been going on over the past couple of months. I’ve recently entered back into life as a student full time, doing a Master’s degree in IT. More recently, I was fortunate enough to be invited by the photography club at UNSW to give a talk on my approach to food photography, which was a load of fun.
Incidentally, all the images for this post are from that talk – a beautiful two-tier, insanely rich dark chocolate mud cake with dark chocolate ganache encased white fondant, courtesy of Chocolate Artisan; a tray of cheap, unremarkable supermarket mini muffins standing in as a photographic model; and a demonstration of the aesthetically pleasing but easy to achieve pouring shot below.
There’s are also a number of upcoming projects that I’m involved with.
There’s the recently announced Photography Essentials food photography workshop on 15th October (places are still available). The more advanced Food Photography Principles workshop is in the works and will hopefully be announced soon.
There is also the Eat. Drink. Blog. 2011 Australian Food Blogger’s conference, which Trina, Jen and I are furiously working our little butts off to organise (then again, I’m not sure I can classify my backside as little). There will be a lot going on photographically speaking regarding the conference compared to last year, so make sure to keep an eye out on the Eat. Drink. Blog. site for more info.
Lastly, my photography blog, the heart of photography, will be getting a make over and should hopefully be up and more active, come the end of the year.
Busy times ahead as you can see. I’ll do my best to find some time for a post here or there. In the meantime, I thank you for your continued support during this period. If you’re not already aware, you can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram (via Gramfeed) and more recently on Google+. Feel free to Follow, Like, Follow and Add to Circles, respectively :)
