“I decided to open a food blog in order to compile family recipes, either Mexican or Spanish, for sharing them with both families as well as gather all them together for our daughter so in the future, she can prepare them.” Veronica Orti is a Spanish woman, married with a Mexican. She shares authentic family recipes on her blog "Entrefogones & Artilugios”.
How did it happen? Photography has always been a hobby since I was a child but it was not until I decided to open the blog that I realized how much I had to improve my photography in order to show the people the real characteristics that the dish’s had.
Why do you blog? I want the people to feel the same I did when I visited blogs with great photos. I spent hours visiting food blogs with beautiful photography. They were and continue to be a source of inspiration for me.
Want to achieve? The first goal I had when I opened my blog was to spend my time improving recipes, especially Mexican recipes. Nevertheless, as time passed, photography has become my first goal.
What does photography mean for you? I spend more time thinking about the photography I want to create, props I want to use, the mood I want to show, etc. So, at this moment I prefer to post less but being sure that the photos I use are really what I want to show. Since then, 4 years ago, I have not stopped studying photography, improving my photography gear and trying to do better, little by little.
Your work? Two years ago, I´ve started working as a freelance photographer. I have been asked to do independent jobs as a food photographer for specific publicity media campaigns. I have enjoyed this work a lot. It has gotten me closer to my goal: becoming a professional food photographer.
Your message? I´ve realized that the more you learn, the more you want to improve, but that is the best part of this… You never finish learning new things and improving each day.
