A confession: I know basically nothing about photography. I know, I can hear your gasps of disbelief from here. “But Nicole!” you say. “What about your award-winning photographs? What about your dozens of instagram followers?” Total dumb luck, I assure you.
The one thing I do know about photography, the thing that’s been drilled into my head by every photographer friend I have, is natural light. Food (and everything else) looks much better with natural light. Now here’s the issue. My old apartment had much better windows, included a nice big one in the kitchen. As long as I wasn’t cooking at night, I could be guaranteed some pretty good natural light. Our new apartment, not so much. The kitchen doesn’t even have a window in it, so I basically rely on icky fluorescent light. Bleh. It’s enough to make a girl give up totally on the idea of food blogging.
But that’s not really my style. And even though when I’ve woken up lately it has been so dark and dreary that I actually assume that I was accidentally waking up in the middle of the night, I wanted to do some cooking. And I wanted to record what I was cooking, because these are my favourite biscuits of all time. I call them Fake Red Lobster biscuits, but Will claims that they’re better than Red Lobster biscuits. I wouldn’t know, having been a vegetarian for so long.
