A slow weekend, just how I like them. A friend over for dinner on Friday evening, a relaxing Saturday and brunch in the city with the same friend on Sunday. In between, I watched a food & culture photography workshop with Penny De Los Santos, which was inspiring to say the least. I think my husband was sick of me telling him about all of the things that I learned.
I’ve been researching a lot to do with our local food situation. When and where the nearby farmer’s markets are, local honey from an urban bee keeper’s co-op. I’ve also been making plans for growing my own, despite our limited space. I have room in my kitchen window for herbs and there’s also room for a hanging box on my porch. I think I’ll grow some salad in the box when I get it set up, It’s probably not really deep enough for any other vegetables.
After asking on my facebook page, I’ve also been thinking of some topics and ideas for a sort of photography tips series. Not that I claim to be an expert by any means of course, but I was thinking I’d just talk about the less technical side of things that I do when I’m taking photographs. Inspiration, expression and things like that because there really are a lot of amazing resources out there already on the technical side of things, I feel like I’d just be rehashing the same information. I’ll probably link to them, though, for reference.
Is that the kind of thing you’d be interested in reading? Feel free to ask some questions and I’ll see if I can cover them in the series. I’ll maybe get around to making a sweet little button for the series so that you can link to it if you like. Perhaps I’ll even give homework assignments, what do you think?
