I've been playing with food a lot at work lately. And by playing I mean making fun things like frozen fruit pops and herb-infused drinks, and then styling and photographing the concoctions. I have such an infatuation with gorgeously styled food photos (see my entire board on Pinterest). I am an absolute infant at styling food, but I've drawn so much inspiration from Pinterest, and I've been having a lot of fun doing it, as rookie as may be.
It's really cool that my job allows me to be so many things that I'm not. I'm not really a photographer. I'm not really a writer. I'm not really a foodie. I'm not really a beauty guru. I'm not really a million other things that I get to be at this job - and maybe that's why I often get stressed out about whether or not I am where I should be; whether or not I'm on the right path - but I suppose that's also what makes this job so incredible. It's like I'm living in a land of make believe, except it's actually real.
Speaking of Pinterest and food photography.. anyone who's on Pinterest is probably well aware of Beth. Her pins overtake my feed every day, and I ain't mad at it. She has an awesome eye and I'm constantly inspired by all of the beautiful images she pins. Well.. I just found out that she has a (gorgeous) food/photography blog, so I wanted to share it with you all! Have a little look at Local Milk.
AND while we're on the subject of food blogs.. you may as well take a look at a Better Happier St. Sebastian. It belongs to Jill, a girl I work with, and it's absolutely incredible.
