So you want to start your own blog eh?
Well you’re going to need some tools to help you make the best blog possible. You’ll need things like :
A decent Camera
Your smart phone can do a pretty good job but it can only get you so far. If you want photos that will get you noticed by potential sponsors and/or become an Influencer in your niche, you will definitely need professional quality photos. It’s one of the smartest and most important things you will invest in your blog.
There are so many ways to take food photos. Weather you will primarily be taking flat lays/ overheads or straight on front view, a pleasant background is a must. Take note of the style of photography you like and plan accordingly. Home Depot and the craft store will be your best go to’s.
Even if you decide on a super clean look with little to no props, you’ll still need something to put the food on. Check out your local Flea markets, Vintage stores, or the favorite stores you always shop in that will compliment your taste. Amazon is always a great source for a huge variety and price comparisons. You can even make your own props!
Sometimes a good kitchen tool or gadget can make good food look great. Paying attention to detail is going to be your best kept secret and so will things like a Mandoline, quality pastry tools, or a really good knife.
You don’t want to be riddled with stress when starting on your new journey. Being organized will relieve a whole lot. Start with a monthly planner to get work flowing smoothly.
Having an organized Pantry will keep you motivated and stress free when creating those soon to be famous recipes.
