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/1.2 lens (I shot exclusively with a Canon 50 mm/1.4 lens from July 2011- September 2014), a Canon 100 mm/2.8 macro lens and a Canon 85 mm/1.2.
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. Shooting food, styling and the way I edit today is something I taught myself.
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?
Q: Are your books be available in English?
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.
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. I highly encourage you to invest in a kitchen scale (doesn’t have to be a fancy one!) and use the gram measurements in my recipes.
