Hey friends , I haven’t been on here much lately, I’ve been a bit busy and felt like I didn’t have much to say 😐
.
Wishing you all a very blessed Easter .
✝️ .
Composition- in music, art, poetry, photography and food styling the artist uses  pieces to make a whole.
Notes, brush stokes, phrases and words.
All the elements arranged in a particular order create an arrangement.
I love thinking about composition, picturing in my head the elements I will use to tell a story and create an image.
🌸
In my upcoming Food Styling Workshop we play around with composition, how using different elements and arranging them in various way, can change the story we are telling.
It’s going to be a lot of fun !
Details for the course are on my website, and the link is in the bio.
I hope you can join us!

My brain is numb, numb y,all.⠀
I can’t think of a clever caption or even a useful explanation of why this image is a really good example of composition and other key principles of food styling.⠀
So I’ll just leave it there.⠀
And add, if you’re interested in the above, food styling composition and other concepts to create an impactful image, check out my food styling workshop course details.⠀

If not, here is a pretty ( well composed 😉) pic of some lovely poached pears. ⠀

Baby bundt cakes are the new cupcake aren’t they.⠀
Super cute, I’m totally behind this trend! ⠀
May I present, Pomegranate, Rosewater and Almond mini bundt cakes, hopefully the visual clues gave you a hint of the flavors.⠀
Flavor cues and visual cues are something we cover in my upcoming food styling workshop.⠀
How you compose your picture and the elements you use to tell a visual story are all the components of a well styled and impactful image.⠀

Happy April !⠀
Happy Autumn 🍂 ⠀
.⠀
I just love these Autumn colors.⠀
.⠀
Colour theory and the use of colors is s powerful food styling tool used to tell a visual story.⠀
The colors are cues to the narrative, and when paired with the appropriate food, props and backgrounds, it creates powerful imagery.⠀
.⠀
I will cover 3 different combinations of Colour and ways of using Colour Theory in my upcoming Food Styling Workshop in May.⠀
.⠀
More details are on my blog - the link is in the bio.⠀
.⠀
Have you signed up for my food styling newsletter- I’ll be sending one out tomorrow with details of my new series on Food Styling Tips ⠀

Every cake tells a story ...⠀
⠀
A special occasion, a celebration, a shared event ( very seldom is cake a solo thing) ⠀
There are so many reasons we bake and create.⠀
The art of visual story telling is to portray the narrative visually through the food styling and props.⠀
Through colors, composition and lighting.⠀
.⠀
What is your photo saying about your cake?⠀
Is it telling the story of triumph- “I mastered this challenging recipe ! “⠀
Is it telling the story of celebration - “ Look what I made! I never thought I could be a baker, I always felt intimidated in the kitchen”⠀
Or in this case, my grandmothers one-bowl bundt cake, tells a story of nostalgia.⠀
Of a simpler time, of a very real kind of slow living. ⠀
An easy recipe that looks impressive but not ostentatious or gaudy. ⠀
A beautiful gesture to friends and family that says I love you enough to bake you a cake on a random Thursday, cause who needs more reason than that !⠀
The props connect to the theme, my grans vintage pressed glass cake stand and gorgeous antique French linen napkin are subtle clues in the story, sentimental and precious. 
The soft, pretty light says that this is a gentle story, a warm story, a wistful story. ⠀
.⠀
Every cake tells s story. Every picture (should) tell a story.⠀
.⠀
I teach you how to tell your visual story in my food styling workshops.⠀
Your food has a story, and it deserves to be told well, I’ll teach you how !⠀
Details are in my bio.⠀

⠀
Friends - you don’t want to miss this !⠀
I am running my second Food Styling Workshop and I am super excited.⠀
.⠀
How to craft a beautiful image that tells a story - you know the saying “ a picture speaks a thousand words” ⠀
Well that’s exactly what I will teach you to do!⠀
Create stunning and dynamic images that “speak” for themselves.⠀
There is so much more to food styling than what you see on the ‘gram.⠀
Come and learn my techniques and create your own magic!⠀

I like this picture.⠀
That’s it.⠀
Happy Sunday friends ⠀

It’s the weekend !⠀
💃🏼⠀
And one last tip on styling drinks ...⠀
If you saw my recent post I mentioned my 3 tips for styling cocktails.⠀
🍸 ⠀
My final tip, might seem obvious but sometimes the obvious things are overlooked, so here goes-⠀
🍹 ⠀
Make sure when you’re styling your drinks that you use appropriate props.⠀
If it’s a floral drink by all means include a flower,🌸 ⠀
But if it’s not then don’t⠀
See?⠀
Obvious but not always.⠀
A swizzle stick, a pretty cocktail shaker and a nice bar spoon are my go to props for styling cocktail drinks⠀
And then compose a strong image that doesn’t require “fluff” in the form of outdated styling aids such as flowers .⠀
Ok friends ⠀
That’s me off to pour myself a cold one !⠀
