#Lr_Taste photo by @twiggstudios || I love baking bread at home; it’s such a simple, honest food with only a few ingredients. This was my first experience baking or eating Hokkaido milk bread. I saw the recipe in @tworedbowls ’s cookbook and instantly knew I needed to try it. The smell coming from the oven while it was cooking filled the kitchen with the most beautiful aroma. • When I tore it open and saw just how incredibly cotton soft it was, I was amazed. I had originally baked it to use for French toast, but it was just so perfectly soft I wanted to eat it as it was. The thought of toasting it and turning that incredible center crispy seemed like a waste. We cut a big slice and ate it with butter. I think it’s probably the best bread I have ever eaten. • I wanted to try and capture that softness in a photo. So I put camera on my tripod and took a few shots with the timer and was happy with how I managed to show the bread’s pillowy inside. I did some basic edits in Lightroom and used the vignette tool to draw the eye to the inside of the loaf as it was the star of the show.

#Lr_Taste photo by @aimeebourque || I love a good lesson from the kitchen, especially if it promotes food sustainability and zero waste. • This simple kitchen project started as a way to demonstrate to my daughter how not all vegetable scraps need to end up the compost bin – many will sprout again in water if given the chance. Part science experiment and part salad inspiration, this mini garden of repurposed produce ends brought a welcome touch of greenery to my table this spring. • Once you start looking, there are a thousand little ways we can make environmentally friendly choices in the kitchen. Re-growing vegetable scraps is just one of them.

#Lr_Taste photo by @BoxOfSpice || Eat in moderation. Buy in moderation. • The global impact of food wastage is enormous. Wasting food, especially meat, uses up valuable resources like huge amounts of land, water, and energy (largely fossil fuels) that all contribute to climate change. Even though we may not be able to control all aspects of food waste, we are one of the many reasons food goes to waste. • I am a big proponent of eating in moderation. Though I am vegetarian, I never advocate quitting meat altogether. Instead, try going vegetarian for a few days in a week – this is always an achievable goal that people seldom shy away from. Whatever you eat, moderation is key. • Make a difference in your food footprint by simple acts: 1. Plan your meals 2. Don’t buy in bulk. It may be cheaper to do so initially, but you don’t save money when you throw most of it out. 3. Store food correctly. Overcrowding your refrigerator will result in forgetting what is stored in the back. 4. Keep an eye on expiration dates. 5. Keep track of what you might be throwing out regularly so you can buy the ingredient in smaller quantities or freeze it next time. 6. Go vegetarian 2-3 times a week. • Share your foodie images this month and tag #Lr_Taste for a chance to be featured on our Instagram page.

Photo by @BoxOfSpice || One person is enough if your convictions are strong. • When I first became aware of my buying habits, my heart was in the right place, but making changes cost me a lot of effort and it was very inconvenient. Some days, I just didn’t want to bother. I also often wondered how my miniscule amount of waste could possibly have any effect on anything. So why bother changing? • Reducing food waste didn’t happen overnight or as a single action – it was a series of small actions I performed that steered me towards a change in my entire thought process over a period of time. A string of behavior patterns led me to a more frugal way of living and therefore made for a less wasteful existence. Meal planning, not buying food packaged in plastic as far as possible, not buying in bulk, buying from local markets for a specific recipe, keeping an eye on ingredients that have an expiration date, and storing food properly to avoid early decay were some of the things I did (and still do) to reduce my impact. • Every decision I make on a daily basis has a consequence, and I think people don’t understand the gravity of their effect on the planet as one mere individual.

Photo by @BoxOfSpice || I’m a mother before I am anything else. Having my daughter changed how I looked at my world and how I see my tiny actions affecting the world on a collective level. Now more than ever, as climate change is happening, it is time to make a change. There is an urgent need to wake up before it is too late for our children’s generation. • Educating the most important person in my life, my daughter, at an early age was paramount to me. Today, sometimes, she teaches me new ways to recycle and even gets to motivate her own friends. I like to think that I am keeping the chain reaction alive that my mother once began. • Check out today’s Instagram Stories to see how I planned this recipe and took this photograph!

Photo by @BoxOfSpice || Before I became passionate about changing some of my habits, I was overwhelmed by the idea of making a full and complete change. From food waste, to the amount of plastic I used, to fast fashion buys, I didn’t know where to start. • The most important thing for me was not to try and change my behavior overnight. I started small. That was a game changer for me. If I ever ask anyone to rethink how they buy, consume, or recycle, I am met with far bigger openness than if I tell them to make a sweeping alteration. • I have come a long way from when I first started a few years ago. Today, I can safely say almost everything I buy (no matter what) gets used or recycled. I know having zero waste is not possible, but it is important to do as much as we can.

Photo by @BoxOfSpice || I was thinking about waste long before I knew what it meant. • I grew up watching my mother avoid waste in every single area of her life. From saving on power by burning just one light in the house, to tirelessly recycling our clothes, to using water so sparingly that it was almost like a rare commodity, she was constantly thinking of new ways to avoid waste. I watched her diligently go to our local market nearly every day to shop for only the items she needed and no more. I never saw food go to waste; I never saw leftovers because food was cooked for just that meal. I grew up never seeing excess. Even though at the time her constant lecturing was annoying, it entered my consciousness without me realizing it. • Food is rarely wasted in my house due to this upbringing, but the last couple of years I have woken up to even a bigger awareness. Every bit that I can save or recycle I do. I have truly become my mother’s daughter.

Hey everyone, @benjamin_warde here, welcome back to #LightroomLessons. Today I’ll show you how to quickly apply an artistic look to your photos using Profiles. Swipe through to see the mini tutorial! • Step 1: Here’s what the photo looked like before the Profile was applied. To apply a Profile, first make sure you’re in Edit mode. • Step 2: Then tap the Profiles button. • Step 3: Profiles can provide a starting point for further editing. They can also be used artistically to achieve a cool look without spending a lot of time. Click the pop-up to see different groups of Profiles. • Step 4: Tap on the group you want. For this photo, I used one of the Artistic Profiles. • Step 5: Swipe to scroll the list of Profiles, and tap on the Profile you want to apply. On this photo I used the Profile “Artistic 6.” • Step 6: The intensity of Profiles can be ramped up and down using the slider. • Step 7: If you have some favorite Profiles that you use a lot, you can tap the star to add them to the Favorites group for quick access. • Step 8: Tap the checkmark when you’re done. • Step 9: Profiles are different than Presets. Presets actually change the position of Edit sliders, but Profiles do not. That means that if you’ve already done some editing to a photo, applying a Profile won’t undo that editing. You can see that I had already edited a lot of the Light settings for this photo before applying the Profile, and all those edits are left intact.

#Lr_Wild photo by @bee.elle.wildlife || This image is called Protection. I was photographing a herd of elephants in Samburu County, Kenya when this young calf appeared through a sea of legs. Young elephants are often kept inside the herd’s circle to provide the calf maximum protection. • Framed by the body of a large adult elephant in the matriarchal herd, the calf’s small body symbolized the fragility of these elephants’ existence. Perhaps it speaks to how we need to provide protection for these elephants, whose survival is under severe threat due to the poaching crisis for the ivory trade. • In a time when there are less than 415,000 elephants left in the wild, it is critical that we act now in order to prevent their extinction, which is expected to occur within a generation.
