give me flour

Hi all!

March 30th, 2012

Hello again! Remember last week I told you I’ve been shooting more than cooking? So, I never brought up this subject here before but I think it is about time to share with you what I am up to and what has been making me so busy.

I would say I’ve been walking through paths I never expected when I started this blog. My intent was to build a good source of recipes and exchange cooking experiences with others; and it is not a secret part of this process involves taking pictures.

That’s how I saw, day by day, my kitchen tools been replaced by photography paraphernalia/gear and photography related books. Day by day this fascinating world of photography started to take first place in my life.

So, last September I got back to school and joined the Certificate Program at Chicago Photography Center, aiming to improve my skills and become a professional photographer. It was a bit confusing at the beginning but now things are starting to get shape, and I can officially say I am switching pans for the camera.

WOW, it feels SO GOOD to say that!

I am not saying I am abandoning my kitchen, no! It is just that my goals have changed and my focus is different now. But don’t worry, please. I am busy with my studies and may continue taking more time than I should to post something new but Give me flour will not change, this blog here will always be the place to gather my two favorite words, culinary and photography.

See you soon, I promise.
