Simple Guacamole

As a self-taught photographer and cook, I find it so frustrating with my dark and uninviting kitchen. There’s no natural light coming through due to the fact that the kitchen has no window. I am forced to take my foods somewhere else to photograph and found the best spot for it – my patio! The sun is shining, birds chirping, children are out on their bikes and I’m photographing out in the open. Love the signs of spring 🙂

And love guacamole! I always refer guacamole as an “earthen” food. No cooking, so fresh and natural.

And, yes.. I had these as part of my lunch today 😉

Are you having trouble finding the “light” to photograph? Any tips?


  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and cubed in bite size pieces
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onions
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tsp pickled jalapeno
  • pinch of salt & pepper


  1. Dump everything in a bowl, mix and serve cold with either tortilla chips or fresh pita breads. Try adding guacamole in wraps as an alternative to hummus. Delish 😉
