luisabrimble Two best thing about a gathering with Italian friends - (1) they serve two different types of pasta dishes in the menu (2) they talk about all things food. Anna & Simon and crew of @pastaemilia treated Poppy and I with the simplest pasta dishes and good company in their treehouse in Scotland Island today. 10h

luisabrimble I was going through the archives and found the one that started it all - #girlholdingflowersseries This was taken 2 years ago my first muse being @staceyclarkstylist - whilst we were setting up for a Kinfolk event. On another news I'm going to be visiting Perth on 18th September to run a 1-day only Food Photography & Styling workshop with @staceyclarkstylist and @mydarlinglemonthyme. The link to purchase tickets is in my profile. See you there Perth! 5d

luisabrimble “Photography is very subjective. These photos are someone’s choice of what they want to do.” @locallovely and I printed some images to create a ‘Pinterest wall' of our favourite food and lifestyle images. This is Annie Herron @artclasseswithannieherron - teaching the class the ‘Art of Seeing’. Annie is an art teacher who has taught art to all ages for 40 years. She’s also a regular volunteer at the Art Gallery of NSW and was currently heavily involved in the Art Gallery’s Archibald Prize. I learnt so much just listening to Annie analyse which of the images worked and didn’t worked and why. Learning to look at images in shapes, and injecting some of the ‘elements of design’ in our photographs. What really stayed with me is this... “If something is perfect you can’t get involved with it.” - in reference to photographs where nothing is left for our minds to wander. #localislovelyworkshop 2w

luisabrimble Before photography, before styling - art comes first. It's really refreshing to learn to see shapes, shadows and tones. Learning the art of seeing with @artclasseswithannieherron at @locallovely Winter Creative Storytelling Pracshop #localislovelyworkshop. Cutting shapes before composing - this is the scene by @erinmadethis and @exchangestoresnundle 2w

luisabrimble 'Firsts' are always very special. Firsts are the ones you remember the most. This is my first @countrystylemag feature. Golly thank you Victoria & Giota for the opportunity. It's really been a while since I remembered being so nervous going to the newsagency excited to buy a magazine. The story is out now in @countrystylemag September issue featuring some floral goodness from @aleksandradiary. 3w

luisabrimble Who's looking forward to warmer weather? Photographed @theflourybaker Spring/Summer menu and picnic baskets today. You wouldn't know we shot this just outside of our garage. There's a window on top that I can use for that higher angle. Styled by @johnmangila. 3w

luisabrimble I sometimes find it hard to appreciate the photo that I took because I do know that anyone can take the same shot. I find that I go 'oh that's nice' (à la Shirley from the TV show Community) when I see my photo used in a website. The photos are now up from the @mocconacoffee shoot we did a few weeks ago. Once again all credit to all the food bloggers - @erinmadethis @loveswah @84thand3rd @ripejournal @juliee_tee @simmerandboyle @healthyeating_jo @buttercremelane for preparing all the food we photographed and all styled by @stephanie_somebody. Lots of new recipes in the website link in my profile. 4w

luisabrimble Ok Fiji you're forgiven. It's been raining since we got here. The girls didn't even bother changing into their swimmers when they saw how inviting beach looked after that short spell of sunshine. 4w

luisabrimble No totally not my photo. I'm not that cool to pull something as crazy good as this. This is @olisansom original image. SWEAT SHOP - naming a photography workshop is hard let alone be creative enough to write a blurb. I'm sharing this because I've not read a workshop blurb as good as @ericronaldphoto and @olisansom have put together. I don't share something unless it's awesome, unless it's worth sharing or unless it caught my attention. This one did. It put every workshop blurbs or workshop names to shame ha ha ha yes including the ones I do I must admit (I will most definitely be commissioning these guys to write one for us in the future ha ha ha). I wish there was a photography workshop 7 years ago that offers exactly what @ericronaldphoto and @olisansom are doing. I would most definitely borrow, beg or steal just to attend it. If you want to know more I've included a link in my profile. Seriously go and check it out. If the sense of humour and the quality of work of these two guys are anything to go by you're in for an absolute treat! 4w

luisabrimble PHOTO BY: @leanandmeadow. It's definitely way more fun working with other people. I've always mentioned in previous workshops that I meet the next person I collaborate with at gatherings or if not when I conduct workshops. It's exactly how this little project came about - meeting @the_dailys @leanandmeadow @caitlinmelling and @missarahglover.

Ok here it is - A workshop where content is KING! Where 95% is practical shooting. This will get you photographing story after story, scene by scene. Cooking in rustic shearers' quarters by the old wood stove, candlelit dinners in a spectacular woolshed, breakfasts on linen-covered tables out in the paddock, with piles and piles of foliage and flowers to play with. We will show you how to tell stories though photography and fill up your cameras with beautiful scenes.
This workshop is a labour of love everything is at cost to cover venue fee, food, activities and workshop hosts' time. The reason being is firstly we were finding a reason to come back to the Dumaresq Valley after the #weekendwiththedailys roadtrip and secondly is we would like to recreate the same experience and more. I've always wanted a workshop where all you do is shoot, shoot and shoot to your heart's content. I seek out content and it's what I've done in the past 3 weeks doing little trips to rural NSW, Tasmania and Byron Bay. I find it for the reason that I want that 'degree of difficulty' in my image that is not easily accessible to anyone to photograph except of course the creative friends you're travelling with. If there's a way we can offer the same experience then this will be one to attend. This is getting you out there to explore the country and photograph it's beauty, whilst in the company of other creative friends. The most fitting quote I read yesterday was written by @janinavictoria she wrote - "It's so refreshing to be in a room filled with other creatives just doing what you love - it's like medicine!" This is the reason why I love organising this collaborative workshops. To surround myself with this energy and share the love of photography.
