The act of eating unites us, and food blogging allows us to share our experiences with the world. In this 90 minute workshop, food blogging veteran, author, and professional food photographer Matt Armendariz will share his story on why he turned to blogging and how it changed his world. We’ll also discuss what makes a successful blog (hint: it’s a unique blend of story, image, and most importantly your unique point of view). Topics to be covered include writing, authenticity, perspective, as well as the specifics of creating great images of food using what you have on hand. Q&A with Matt will close the evening.
