How long do you think it takes to create a photo you see on food blogs?

Planning,cooking, styling, taking photos, shopping of course for ingredients and props.........

Food bloggers are either mad or they just love what they do ;) I think I'm both - barmy and devotee of good food and good food photography!


Photography is all about LIGHT right???!!!This actually can be very, very, very tricky!Especially if you live in ENGLAND ;)

Believe me, the sun was shining 5 minutes before this photo was taken, I set the scene, ready for photo shoot and......upsss.That's what you call  ENGLISH WEATHER!

It takes a long time to set the scene and take satisfying photo.....And some house mates or husbands -  to be more precise get very impatient.....especially if the delicious smell fills in the house from top to bottom ;)

Working from 7 o'clock on Sunday,all day long can sometimes be exhausting....but it all doesn't matter when you see the photo on the screen of your laptop and it's exactly what you wanted to achieve.

And then you happen to walk into a kitchen.....rub your eyes.....rub your eyes again.....OMG!What happened in here?

Anyone volunteer to help????

This recipe supposed to be added on my blog ages agoooo!I'm not sure if you will be able to find any blackberries anywhere now, if not, simple apple crumble is as nice ;)



500g/17.6 oz apples
500g/17.6 oz blackberries
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
3-5 TBSP brown sugar


200g/7oz butter(cold)
150g/5.3oz plain flour
100g/3.5oz oats
50g/1.7 hazelnuts, chopped
100g/3.5 oz brown sugar


1.Prepare crumble first. Place the flour, oats and hazelnuts in a large bowl and then rub in the butter until it resembles crumbs - leave a few lumps of butter so that the topping is not too fine. Add the muesli or oat/seed/nut mixture and the sugar and mix through.

2.Preheat oven 190C/!70C FAN/GAS 5

3.Place chopped apples in a pan over medium heat.Add sugar and lemon juice and cook for 5 minutes, stirring from time to time.Add blackberries and cook  for another minute.

4.Place the fruit mixture in a oven/pie dish and bake for 40-45 minutes.
