How do you shoot and edit your photographs for your blog? I shoot with a D3300 Nikon DSLR camera, and edit photos using Adobe Photoshop. I try to use daylight as much as I can, so as not to have a lot of work to do with Photoshop.How do you schedule your posts? Firstly I shoot the ingredients and then I try to shoot every stage of cooking procedure so as to make it easier for readers to follow the instructions. Then I do the photo editing and I write the post. What inspires you to write your blog posts? I try to create posts that are fitting to the season, for example I prefer lighter dishes for the summer, because these are what I prefer myself as well. I also try to use seasonal fruits and vegetables and those are that inspire me to create my posts. Can you share your number one personal photography/ blogging tip? Well I don’t consider myself an experienced blogger neither a photographer, but the number 1 tip about photography, especially for the beginners as myself is “use daylight”. Every photo is better under natural daylight. Additionally less editing is needed, and you gain so much both in time and quality. What do you do when you are not blogging? When I’ m not blogging… As I said before, I’m a married, working woman, so time is never enough… But other things I like to do is drawing, going to the sea (I’m lucky, because I’m from Chalkidiki|), relaxing with friends that have a special place in my life… Also cooking with them is something I love to do! What is your favourite social media platform and how that helps your blogging journey? My favourite social media platform is Instagram. I love the immediacy that it offers. Pictures aim straight to the point without many words. I also find inspiration about my new recipes, about making the proper photography scenery and also I find out many interesting Greek and foreign blogs. What is your favourite blog post from your blog? My favourite blog post so far was Strawberry Chocolate Charlotte Cake, as it was a cake made with plenty of love for my mum’s birthday. I use to make a cake for everyone’s birthday, so these recipes are my favourite as they are made fore those I love.
Where would you like to be in blogging five years from now? In five years from now, I hope that I’ll continue blogging, I’ll continue making new recipes and share them, and I hope that I’ll be as happy as I am today doing this!
