Ready for another term?
On Monday, we'll start off with your pictures of Close Up or Macro shots. If you haven't sent any yet, it's not too late. Send two shots to firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday.
The main topic on Monday was researched by Des and will be presented by Diane. The topic is
STILL LIFE AND FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY
We'll also talk about food photography methods.
Food photography is a still life specialisation of commercial photography, aimed at producing attractive photographs of food for a variety of uses including in advertisements, magazines, packaging, menus or cookbooks. Professional food photography is a collaborative effort, usually involving an art director, a photographer, a food stylist, a prop stylist and their assistants.
In advertising, food photography is often – and sometimes controversially – used to exaggerate the attractiveness or size of the advertised food, notably fast food.
But it can be just fun for all of us.
Bring your cameras, tripods, lights, or anything else you need, as we'll have a chance to try our hands at taking shots of food. It'll be fun. Oh and bring some food as well to photograph.
SEE YOU ON MONDAY
