Today I feel a familiar excitement. It is pretty much the same as I felt before I hit publish on my first blog post. This Spring is not only the symbol of renewal, but it is also a great opportunity to grow the Holy Whisk Blog.

I've made a decision! So along with my recipes and foodie stories, I'm gonna open the door of my home studio and let you see and know more about the creation of my food photos.

If you already took a big step forward and switched your camera from auto or semi-auto mode to manual, you possibly felt overwhelmed. Then confused: why it works so easily for others and why did you struggle with getting it right? Then you stopped trying for that day. And picked up your camera on the following day to give it another go.

Does this sound familiar? I tell you a secret: I've been there too. Without any photography education taken in advance, I ended up with a DSLR in my hand for the first time and I had to figure out everything on my own.

I would like to help you overcome the days when "nothing works" and explain each "pixel" of the bigger picture of food photography and styling. As a fellow creative you probably understand correlations illustrated visually or explained through everyday situations, so I will keep my explanations as simple as possible. At the same time, I will introduce you to the industry's jargon so these things won't sound foreign anymore.

Those great photos already exist in your imagination,

so let's capture them together!
