Adventures in Eating

Final Project

In the spirit of december this past seekend I made chocolate peppermint cupcakes. They turned out super delicious and fun to photograph. I used more props and i think the lighting was good that day. I do know that I need an SLR cam era as opposed to my little cannon point and shoot.

My cover photo, the fourth photo, is the one I like the best and can be judged but i would like feedback on all the photos even the previous ones.

This class was a lot of fun and I learned so much. I love food and I love food photography and will be pursuing it more!

Here are my final pictures. Thanks for everything!

What I Learned in Week One 11/30

After watching the first lecture I took these photos. The product (bell pepper) and what I made with it for breakfast and lunch. Feedback would be greatly appretiated!

In the next week I am going to try and work more with props. I tried with the bell pepper picture.

Fresh cut bell pepper from two angles

Egg cheese bell pepper and salsa breakfast burrito

Simple crisp salad

Red Food 11/29

These were taken before watching the lesson on Monday evening. I took quite a few photos of this mini Thanksgiving dinner and decided to show you these three. Pretty much the same lighting just a few different angles. There are more to come based on what I have learned.

Turkey with stuffing and cinammon cranberry apple sauce :)

My personal favorite/best.

I love entire meals and I now see that maybe I could have set it up a little different and of course the lighting is everything as we have learned but it is difficult for a lot of us to shoot during the little daylight we have.


Preview 11/25

It all started with this photo January 1st 2011.

The sandwhich looked so good I had to capture it, with my camera phone of course.

I had to get every element and from then on I started a year in food and took a picture of what I ate everyday for a year!

Yes I missed a few but I had fun doing it. I still take photos of  food that I make or eat elsewhere that just makes me go...OMG!

I am a baker and am constantantly baking cupcakes. Its sort of my thing. But I love cooking and baking anything that makes my mouth water.

Below I posted a few photos I have taken in the past as a preview.

Although they are not the best in terms of lighting or clairity I really like how they turned out and I am reminded of the sensations I had while eating them!

As you can imagine with a year in food I had alot to choose from I originally posted 18 but pick 6 that I thought were the best and will share the others some other time.

I am interested in learning more about plateing and styling as well as capturing a shot that shows many elements of the food. I like to play with angles and proportions as well.
