    Your photography is incredible! What camera do you shoot on? I’m absurdly hungry now.

      I use a Nikon D90 SLR with an 18 – 105 mm lens for blog photos. Lucky for me I live in a very light house, so I use only natural light. Since the sun has dropped in the sky I have had to put the camera on a bench tripod for longer exposures. I still feel it’s a bit of a hit and miss situation, but thanks for the lovely compliment
