Behind the scenes of a food blogger….

If you love food blogs and have a sweet tooth, chances are you’ve already discovered:
*Inside BruCrew Life*
And if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?…get over there right now and submerge yourself in delicious yumminess!!!
Not convinced yet?
Well let me tell you, I do not have a sweet tooth, but when this girl gets her bake on and supplies us with treats, even I find it hard to resist eating them all a few.

Icecream Cones

Jocelyn, the everything behind Inside BruCrew Life, recently agreed to let me photograph a  ‘behind the scenes’, as she was setting up a photoshoot of her latest creation.
Brownie Batter Coffee Ice-Cream! 

I have to admit, I never considered all the work that went into food blogging.
Not only do you have to create/make the product, but the photographing of the food isn’t just a case of dumping it in a bowl or on a plate, and snapping away with your camera, there’s the lighting, props, backdrops etc; to consider.
And that’s before you even get to the blogging part! Phew!!
Who knew?
I really have discovered a lot from watching Jocelyn work.

(I also discovered…. that her ice-cream is De-lish-ous!! 😉 )
And…before we left, she baked us some treats to take home… 🙂
Gooey Butterfinger Brownie Bars…YUM!!!
(although we had to share with the girls when we got home…so unfair!)

  1. No one understands unless they are doing it. My own family doesn’t see all that I go through, they just enjoy the cooking and baking lol. I’m still fairly new to all this and all have a long ways to go. But I’ve been a baker in my home for many years lol. I just decided one day to show it off, my love for it lol. I had no clue, but I’m enjoying it so go figure haha

      That’s so true. I take hours when Im baking. Hours when I’m photographing things, plus the editing, and then more time when I’m blogging.
      I don’t know why I thought food blogging was easier…..maybe because when I cook to blog a recipe, I usually have my food stuff in one hand and the iPhone in the other….shame on me 😦
      I’ll have to wander over to your blog 🙂
      I’m not much of a baker, but I do enjoy cooking 🙂

      Thank you Kathy. And yes, it really is. I have a whole new respect for food bloggers, and I think I’m going to take a leaf out of Jocelyn’s book, and make more of an effort next time I photograph food. 🙂
