When I was a sophomore in high school I had an amazing photography teacher who got me hooked. I was so passionate with the subject that I set up a darkroom in my bathroom and ended up starting college as an Art Major, hoping to continue in the field of photography.
Somewhere down the line things took a major turn. I got a degree in International Relations, moved to Israel, worked in research, until finding my way back to the world of photography, but this time as a stylist.
Danya, the one who is responsible for the beautiful photography on this blog, has recently been a bit out of commission for the best reason, the birth of her beautiful third son. Before the birth she gave me a short lesson on shooting with my camera, and she was confident that I could do some shoots on my own.
Wrong. But what I can do is Instragram. It makes me feel like I’m a photographer again.
Here are some of my Instagram rules:
- I only post photos that I think are of good quality. I don’t quite get the people who post photos that are really out of focus/unfiltered//…
- I try to post photos with an emphasis on food/design/travel. As opposed to Facebook, where I don’t usually post things having to do with my professional life, I feel instragram is just the place to do so. A lot of people want to know what behind the scenes of a food photo shoot looks like- I try to show that.
- I try not to post too many of my kid. He’s really photogenic though (Im not subjective, right?), which makes this rule a tough one.
