Still on a vibration high after spending the weekend with my mom and my sister visiting Las Vegas, and later Arizona to visit Gran Canyon and the Hoover Dam… I have tons of pictures and videos to share and will share them this week (hopefully! Lol).
And speaking of pictures and videos, one of the questions I get a lot is “HOW DO YOU CAPTURE SUCH BEAUTIFUL PICTURES OF YOUR FOOD?”
…Well, creating beautiful pictures for YOU is super important to me. It’s my way of saying I APPRECIATE YOU and I want to give you the best quality content I possibly can so you feel compelled to come back for more. I also know that capturing beautiful pictures and videos makes it easier for you to get motivated to try my recipes and follow my healthy tips.
For the longest time, I have been taking my pictures (and even some of my Youtube videos!) with my phone. Having a Samsung Galaxy S9+ makes it sooooo easy!
Just a few years ago, you HAD to have a professional camera if you wanted to create beautiful pictures and videos. That’s just not the case anymore (luckily!).
My favorite feature from the Samsung Galaxy S9+ is its Dual Aperture lens, which adapts like the human eye. I can easily capture stunning pictures in bright daylight and even super low light which is very important because sometimes I have to shoot at night because life gets crazy and I don’t have time to do it during the daytime.
Being Latina, I was raised with the knowledge that “La Comida Entra Por Los Ojos” (good food starts with how it looks, or something like that Ja!) so that’s why it is SO IMPORTANT for me to have a great phone like this, so I can honor how my culture and the way my people see food + I can make all my recipe’s pictures come out popping!
I also love to create memories with my familia… gather on the weekends, sharing, cooking, dancing, singing (mostly, me. Selena, always Selena!). My beautiful Hispanic family is LOUD (what’s new? Jaja) and there ‘s not a single moment we don’t want to capture. Videos and photos are always a must and that’s why I love my Samsung Galaxy S9+ it allows me to capture these hallmark moments in a practical and beautiful way, so we can have fun watching it together later or send it to our crazy group chat!
Does your familia do that? A group chat is like THE thing in mine… the craziness that ensues in it is at another level Lol I save ALL of it on my phone!
If you had a Samsung Galaxy before, you’ll notice that this new Samsung Galaxy S9+ may look similar, but the camera with slow-mo, dual aperture, and increased pixels increases the experience. The screen & waterproof is a huge improvement for the Galaxy S6 & S7 users.
I MEAAAAANNNNN… Do I need to say more? 🙂
Can you believe we took the above pic with it? to see more of my recipe’s pictures I’ve taken lately with my phone, just make sure to visit the RECIPE section here on my page.
I can keep rambling forever, but I have 9,000,000 pictures and videos from Vegas and Grand Canyon to sort out and kind of get back on my workflow again after these mini-vacation days.
Just in case you were wondering, you can totally find the new Samsung Galaxy S9+ at your nearest Target store on the electronics section!
