How often do School kids get the opportunity to meet in person, a food stylist, recipe developer, chef, photographer, food blogger & traveller all rolled into one? Well the students of Seth Anandram Jaipuria School Lucknow were fortunate enough to meet one such person – Ms. Surabhi Sehgal. She was based in Dubai and has very recently moved to India. She works extensively on Instagram and has endorsed many products on her Instagram handle (Su paints on plates).
She conducted an interactive session, wherein she spoke about her personal journey and how she dabbled in many a profession before she finally found her creative calling in styling food. She told the students about making a diligent and consistent effort in the pursuit of their passion. She spoke about how she created a niche for herself in the world of food stylists on Instagram by using natural colours of the various ingredients to enhance the aesthetic appeal of her food.
She told the students how it is important for them to be aware of their calling and be willing to pour their heart and soul into it. She also spoke about the responsible use of various social media sites to not only be connected socially with friends but also to use it as a device to achieve their professional goals.
She emphasized on the use of colour, light and food props which are commonly used in styling food to give an insight to the students about how the scope of this industry has grown phenomenally. The students enjoyed the session thoroughly and were mesmerized with the pictures of the food that were displayed.
