What I learned from blogging without a “proper” camera

Well, we did it, we went the entirety of March without once leaning on my fancy camera for blog snaps. I guess we should probably talk about how that went. If you feel like this intro is lacklustre, you should know that I’m writing it pretty hungover and I’m probably not going to go back and edit it because this whole month is about quick, one take, low maintenance blogging and I really like it that way. I have to say straight up, just so that you know which direction this post is heading in, I have loved not using my camera this month. It’s been a real game changer for me in a lot of ways, let us have a look at said ways. Stuff that got better Speed The visual aspect of blog posts have been so much quicker to sort out this month, it’s a dream.

  You instinctively click on posts with shitty headlines like this that are determined to exploit your fear of not being good enough. Have a little respect for yourself, man.

I don’t know any better than you. This is a very short post to remind you that you’re the expert on expressing your own creativity on your own platforms, don’t let other people form your view of “right” and “wrong” based on their opinions.  Have a good day love you bye.

Why I’m Ditching The Camera Next Month

If you enjoy both procrastination and food as much as I do, then you’re probably an avid reader of everything Bon Appetit publishes already. If that’s the case, then you’ll already know that every single image in their March issue was taken with an iPhone. I don’t know what it is that thrilled me so much about this bold move by Bon Appetit. Perhaps it’s the fact that it embraces modern food culture so keenly (in 2016, if you didn’t use your iPhone to Instagram your weekend breakfast, it didn’t happen) or perhaps it’s just because it’s a decision that really must have taken some balls. Whatever it is, it clearly had a profound effect on me… Inspired by them, I’m going to be doing the exact same thing on Cate in the Kitchen. From the 1st to the 31st of March 2016, every single image you see on this blog will be shot with my iPhone 5S. I’ll be taking it slightly further than the photographers for BA, in that I won’t be using …
