I am a self taught food photographer, videographer and content creator. It all started with launching the food blog way back in 2010. As I started sharing recipes in my blog, I realized the importance of food photography. So I invested on a basic DSLR and started reading the boring manual page by page. Along with reading the manual, I also started seeing lots of videos and tutorials. Soon I realized that the best way to learn is to practice every day.
Several years back I did this project of taking one photo every single day, edit it and share in flickr (there was no Instagram back then). I would receive positive comments which I was always thankful about and few negatives that pushed me to do better.
I take my camera with me to every family gathering, local farmers market and definitely when we are in a vacation. Taking photos every single day and trying new ambiance helped me to learn more. Photography is a passion once cannot push one into. You need to find that fire inside you to make photos and for that you need that creative mind to find beauty in anything.
Several years back, when I was not really that great, I had shared two basic photography tutorials which everybody loved and learned from. It was way back in 2012. Even today, I get a lot of traffic on those two posts. I will eventually update these two basic photography posts, but until then go ahead and spend sometime reading!
