The Art of Food Photography & Styling

The 7th of September saw Food Blogger Connect make its first foray abroad, with a photography and styling workshop in the beautiful Beit al Batroun guest house, a quaint and quiet Bed and Breakfast in the foothills above Batroun, a seaside village in Northern Lebanon.
