Ready for a new year of fun photo assignments? I knew you were!
To start off 2011, I thought you would all enjoy something you can do inside (or outside if you live in a warmer climate than me) and something we have each and every day of our lives. Assignment 11 is on Food Photography.
I am not looking for a simple snapshot of a plate of food here. I am looking for you to create new photographs of food which will make our mouth’s water. For our stomachs to growl. And our noses to twitch imagining the aroma of the food presented in the photograph. Photograph the food like you would see it in a magazine or an advertisement for a restaurant. You up to the challenge..er, assignment?
As in the other assignments, do not send me your photos. What I would like you to do is post them on your blog, flickr or other photo sharing site, personal website or any other place on the Internet where you can place a link to it here by making a comment to this blog entry. Then we can visit those sites and enjoy everyone’s Food Photography.
Please, have your photos posted on or before Midnight (your time), Wednesday, January 26, 2011. Don’t have a place to post? Might be a good time to start up a blog or join a photo community like flickr. As I have done for all the Assignments, I’ll put together a recap with my comments.
If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. By the way, I would really appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this assignment so we can get lots of people to participate. Blog it, tweet it, email it and talk about it to your fellow photographers, bloggers, friends, family and pets. Thank you
