Since I took the plunge into the world of blogging, I have been especially delighted by the supportive nature of the food blogging community both in Sydney and around the world.
When I found myself sitting at a table with several other food bloggers at the A Table for Two food photography workshop last weekend, I felt at once totally comfortable and incredibly inspired.
The ATFT blog and workshops are the brainchild of Billy Law, a previous Masterchef Australia contestant, food photographer, cookbook author and self-confessed sweet-tooth.
Over two days, Billy talked us through the technical aspects of food photography and what to do with that big hunk of metal and plastic that goes click when you press the button.
Then there was the personal advice and clever tricks he generously shared about the art of food styling. Billy’s bubbly personality put us all at ease, regardless of how silly our questions were.
There were a few Ah-ha! moments for me and a few things in my brain went ‘click’ as my camera did the same.
The good people of Mumu Grill kept us all well fed with a delectable and nicely staggered four course meal that helped fuel our bodies while all the new ideas fuelled our minds.
Somehow sipping a glass of wine at 11 am seemed perfectly acceptable when it was all part of the quest for knowledge and self-improvement.
As a newborn in this world of food blogging, this workshop was exactly what I needed and I hope to put all the little tips I picked up into action very soon.

I’m so envious! I wish I lived closer to Sydney sometimes. I work at my food photography but I need to do so much more!
Where do you live Maureen? I agree, sometimes it helps to be taught something rather than just relying on what you have been teaching yourself.
Such a great idea…I take pictures with my iPhone. Terrible right? I could use a class like this!
Actually the iPhone actually takes quite good pics! I rely on it in restaurants cos I don’t want to be the one at the table with the big DSLR 🙂
Was such a good day wasn’t it! As you said, it was lovely to be surrounded & have the support of other food bloggers. Best of luck with OSP x
