YOUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What camera equipment do you use?
A: I use a Canon eos 5D mark II. Since September 2014 I shoot most of my photos with a Canon 24-70/2.8 lens. The other lenses I use are a canon 50 mm/1.4 lens (I shot exclusively with this one from July 2011- September 2014) and a canon 100 mm/2.8 macro lens.
Q: Where did you learn photography?
A: I studied photography in high school and that’s where I learnt how to shoot film, develop photos in a darkroom, shoot digital and the basics of Photoshop.
Q: Where do you take all your photos?
A: In my little apartment where I’ve lived since the very beginning of this blog. I don’t have a studio but shoot in my kitchen or living room.
Q: Who eats everything you make?
A: This is probably the question I get the most! I eat some of it, my fiance Christian eats some, then I try to give the rest away or put in the freezer. Though sometimes we eat all of it, just the two of us.
Q: Can I buy one of your photos as a print?
A: Yes, you can! Through my little shop, Prints & props.
Q: Will your books be available in English?
A: Yes! All three of them will be available in English! Find my cake book, Lomelino’s cakes on Amazon. My ice cream book, Lomelino’s ice cream, will be available during spring 2015. My third book will be available some time during 2016. Look in the “My books” section for more info!
Q: Why haven’t you answered my e-mail or comment?
A: First of all, I try my best to answer all e-mails but sometimes there just isn’t enough time. Either that or I simply didn’t see it! I manage this blog, Facebook, instagram, e-mail and everything else by myself. If you have a question that needs to be answered quickly, I suggest writing on Call me cupcake’s Facebook wall!
Q: What does “dl” stand for? Is that the same measurement as cups?
A: Nope! “dl” stands for deciliter. If you have a problem converting measurements the best thing is to just google it, like this, for example: “2 dl in cups”, and you’ll see the answer straight away.
I’ve started writing most of my recipes in cups and grams instead and I hope that helps. However, remember that 60 grams of flour and 60 grams of cocoa powder may weigh the same, but that doesn’t mean they have the same volume.
