Video of Lina and myself in Berlin, last week! I hope you guys like it. 

(also, I think she’s the loveliest, prettiest, most adorable creature to ever grace the Earth. I think you can tell by the video. *giggles*)

(no I am not, she is! *blushes*)

Kitchen Adventures 

Spaghetti with asparagus, prosciutto and olives.

Again, I was bored and decided to make a video. I am far from being a chef or an expert, i just cook at home, but since I really enjoy food photography, I thought I’d give it a try.

The song is Shimbalaiê, by Maria Gadú.

I don’t even know where to start with this. It’s scary that Lu is more skilled at making videos than I could ever be, even though I’m the one supposedly studying it. The WONDERFUL Nikon she has kinda helps with the advantage, too.

This video is brilliant. The colours are radiant, the details mesmerizing, the angles beautiful. I love all about it, the music and the cuts and the shots and her hands and the food. The video makes me hungry, makes me smell the food as if I’m RIGHT THERE - even though I hate green asparagus AND olives AND smoked ham, so that’s a big accomplishment! XD

Seriously Lu, you are awesome and I love you. But because I want to be a good supportive girlfriend who can give constructive criticism as well, I’ll point out some things you could do better in your next video.

I think you hold the shots for a little too long, the editing could be faster, if you wanted. And the crazy focus flailing, especially with the plate at the end, is a little dizzying. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with shifting the focus, in fact it is a very pretty thing to do (once or twice) but if you do it too often, the effect isn’t quite the desired one ;)

But seriously, I’m just saying this so I can pretend I’m a good camera-savvy student with useful information and skills, even though I’m clearly not XD

I love this. I love you.
