Food Photography Tips for Bloggers: Part 2 Here’s the next installment on my Few Thoughts on Food Photography series. There were a lot of questions about equipment and set up in the comments, but being somewhat obsessive about this whole subject—I’m gonna backtrack a bit to share my process—which is, I usually think about composition first, then styling. Grab a cuppa, this is a long post about how I view composition and work from there. The next post will be on styling. From there, many of you asked for step-by-step from set-up to post processing, so I’ll cover that, then onto how to work through creative funks and points of inspiration.

It was in the 80's this past weekend, with hail a few days before that, and today it's in the 50's and raining again. But I don't mind the weird weather so much because the brief high temperature managed to convince the tree in my backyard that it's spring, so it has now exploded with blossoms. The only unfortunate part is that the flowers don't smell very good, and by that I mean they smell like breaded fish. It is a really strange smell, I'm not totally sure what kind of tree it is, the leaves look kind of like an Ash tree but I am not positive.

Mondays are a great day to start such a regimen. Drinking on Monday nights is like eating soup with your hands - no one ever said ‘don't do it' and yet it's taken as a given that it's a bad idea. On the upside, Sydney's bars are mostly empty on a Monday which means you won't have to jostle for elbow room while you're ordering drinks.

Café Review – Palomino Espresso, Sydney CBD Sydney CBD cafés usually have a very different feel from those on the city fringe. Your Petty Cash Cafés, you Belljars don’t really exude the same frantic, grab-your-latte-and-raisin-toast-and-run vibe that you get at somewhere like, say, Vella Nero.

In any case the York Street hub, with the likes of the quirky Shirt Bar and the laneway haven York Lane is a pretty awesome place to be grabbing your coffees and lunches these days.
