My question in the facebook group with Dutch blogger as to who could not be missed in this series Marleen’s name passed by a couple of times. And rightfully so as her photos are gorgeous as you can see below. Marleen blogs on her site Eten uit de Volkstuin
How long have you been blogging and did you start taking foodphotos straight away or did that come later?
I’ve been blogging for five years now about my vegetable allotment. It used to be a large piece of meadow. Full of bumbs and holes. And with too many weeds to count! I started with blogging to keep track of the changes in my garden. To see if all those little efforts in the end made a big difference. So when I came home, rather discouraged, I would look up old photos on my blog and I would notice that I did actually do an enormous amount of work already. now that the garden is where it is meant to be, the blogging has moved more towards thinking and photographing dishes with vegetables and fruits from my garden.
What kind of equipment did you use in the beginning and what do you use now?
In the beginning I used a finepix compact camera. About 1,5 years ago I inherited the digital SLR from my dad, a Canon 350D from 2003. Most of the photos on my blog are made with that camera. A few months ago I bought myself a new camera. A Canon 70D and I am very happy with that! My favorite lens is a canon 60mm 2.8 macro lens.
