Food Porn


Now don’t get too excited.  Well, actually, go ahead.   This weekend I attended one of four food "porn" photography classes that I signed up for at Kitchen in the Market, a fab, new commercial kitchen available for rent for caterers, producers & manufacturers, mobile food trucks, and others who need licensed space to create their culinary delights; and to my delight, they also have cooking classes.


In this first class, we focused on a travel theme and telling a story through photos.  We wondered around Midtown Global Market to find shots that inspired us.

I’m not going to lie, but they had at me at “hello” with the glass of bubbly they handed me upon my arrival.   What a way to start a Sunday afternoon photography class!

Here is a sample of the photos I shot (I took 92).   


















So, I’m not going to win any awards or anything but I had fun using my “eye” to find interesting compositions and looking at things from a different angle.   

And, as if the beginning of class wasn’t good enough, we ended the class with beer, wine, and tacos!     


My only regret is that I brought my Cannon point-and-shoot camera instead of my Nikon DSLR.  I really need to learn how to get that thing off auto.  I’ve taken photography classes but am still afraid of all the buttons.  I think it has to do with the fact that math is involved?   I really need to work on that before the next class and it is definitely a goal this year.  

I’m really looking forward to the next class in February, which promises to be “sensual” as it explores food for lovers and we even get to get our hands dirty!    

I’m curious - what is your favorite photo above?   Talk to me……

  1. Great Composition! (get out that Nikon and start practicing! It's digital and that's the fun part of it too--keep shooting!)
