Lately, I’ve noticed a resistance in me whenever I try to come up with a new recipe for the blog. I’m always looking for the next incredible thing, like a purple lattice pie or a pink layer cake with chocolate glaze, but recently I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not possible for me to always make things like that. There has to be a balance. And what do I prefer to eat? Usually quite simple things, to be honest! And anything with cardamom.
I sometimes get frustrated with making a decision, and I stop before I even get started and just thinking about what recipe to make, what props, what surfaces, which lenses should I shoot with makes me exhausted. It can get overwhelming! After telling my friend Emelie about this, we decided I would bring some props and ingredients to her house to shoot a recipe. Making something easy like a crumble, and not being able to choose from aaaaall of the props and background turned out to be exactly what I needed. In addition, she has the most incredible wooden surface right outside her door so shooting there was easy. I might steal the surface, or shoot all my future photos there. Hehe. She has the cutest cats and lives in the most picturesque area, too!
I hope we’ll make this a weekly thing because it was the most fun I had in a while! We were also working on her project which you’ll be able to see on Youtube very soon. 🙂 I hope you’ll like these less advanced recipes as much as I do! By the way, I’ve edited all these photos with the ‘Aqua’ preset from my preset collection ‘Dark Food’ which you can find HERE!
