While talking about photography with Julie the other day, I realized that I hadn’t blogged about a workshop that I had recently attended. The Austin Food Blogger Alliance held an all-day Photography Camp at the end of September. Sessions included discussion about gear, styling, editing, and more, so I definitely knew that I would learn a lot, much like I did at the last AFBA photo workshop. Choosing which sessions to go to was the hardest part!

A couple weeks ago, I saw a tweet encouraging people to sign up for a food photography workshop being held by the Austin Food Blogger Alliance on October 9. Since I just moved here, I thought it would be a good way to meet fellow local bloggers and learn some things about photography. Of course when the day (last Sunday) finally came around, I got nervous and almost didn’t go. Yep, I’m super shy and a room full of strangers is something that I tend to want to avoid. The fact that this would have been my first ever food blogger event added to my uneasiness.
But I went, and guess what? I met fellow local bloggers and learned some things about photography, and had a good time doing so!
