New Photography Backgrounds and Lemon & Blueberry Mini Muffins
How is it that it is nearly the end of January already? I just looked at my page and thought, I still have the holiday post up – better do something about that! I have had a little time off lately, and was lucky, [or unlucky as it was in the prime of the heat wave we just had here in Southern Australia], to enjoy the first few opening days of the Australian Open with my dad. We roughed three days in 42+ C heat [ 107 F ] to watch many big names slog it out on court. Very enjoyable and super hot. I didn’t get anything done the remainder of the week, so this week I have made up for that. Putting finishing touches on my first e-book; to come out in the coming weeks; meetings, jobs, interviews and making more backgrounds for photography.
Today I was shooting a concept and wanted to try out my new table and decided to make some simple lemon and blueberries muffins. I made these on a whim and hope that I got all the ingredients and directions right! At the moment I am working on 6 new backgrounds and I am either having great successful or failing miserably. There is lots of DIY info out there, but I can’t find exactly what I want – so I am going through a little trial and error at the moment. As I have had so much fun putting together my first e-book, I am thinking of doing one on the food photography backgrounds I am making. Would anyone be interested in that do you think?
Looks can be deceiving!
I have taken down this recipe as I have had some feedback that these muffins do not taste at all as good as they look. Some of you will know that I often comment on my [hideous] baking skills, and muffins baking skills sure elude me. I never want my readers to make something from this space and be disappointed. I manage to ruin every muffin recipe that I have ever attempted and these turned out better than I have ever made and so I thought I was onto a winner. I guess not. Why do they look so good then? I only used the ingredients that I had posted about, no tricks, but dense, dry muffins do not always translate in a photo. I wanted to thank my reader who contacted me – I always appreciate feedback.
If anyone can point in the direction of a fool-proof muffin recipe I would be forever grateful – baby steps!
