I spent my tube journey home last night examining the different tools my Lumix camera has to offer and that is thanks to the Bloggers Connect event that I attended yesterday at Levant in Central London.
I heard about the event from the lovely Bethan a la dirtykitchensecrets after she posted a comment on my blog a couple of months ago. The event intrigued me, not only because it the first bloggers conference in the UK but I would be able meet and put faces to the people whose blogs I have been reading for a while.
I didn’t know what to expect and was a little nervous walking in there on my own not knowing anyone but all nerves were shattered once I started talking. It wad a great event and I met some lovely people, some of who’s blogs I am not familiar with but look forward to reading!
We started with a drink and chat then moved onto the Lebanese buffet that was prepared for us along with Lola’s mini cupcakes and some of the best mint tea I have ever tasted before sitting down to watch talks from Kang from London Eater, Jeanne from Cook sister!, Jamie from Life’s a feast and Meeta from What’s For Lunch Honey? I mostly took note of how to make the most of my camera and how to take beautiful photos of your food (even in dimly lit restaurants). A special thanks to Kang who helped me understand the ins and outs of all of those previously difficult to understand technical aspects of my camera.
Unfortunately there just wasn’t enough time to speak to everyone but hopefully next time – I’ll definitely be attending the next one.
