Food Porn: Part 2


I attended my second (of four) Food Porn class at Kitchen in the Market this past Sunday.   Once again, they had me at the start with the “welcome to class” Champagne cocktail.   I brought along my nice, big Nikon camera this time; but also had my little point-and-shoot tucked snuggly in my back pocket just in case.  

The theme of this class was focused on the sensual side of food: “Food for Lovers.”   Perfect timing with Valentine’s Day right around the corner.  

My is goal to tell a story of what we ate and drank through photos.   On a winter Sunday, gathered in an indoor kitchen.......


I love this idea of sticking an herb sprig in a pitcher of water.  It looks pretty and adds just a hint of flavor (in this case rosemary) to the water.   I will definitely be doing this at home - you should too!

If these photos tell a story of eating and drinking well then I succeeded.  You'll be happy to know that I did take my camera off "auto" - yay me!   I've decided break my camera learning into parts and learn one thing at a time so I don't get overwhelmed.  This week I upped my ISO to allow for more light to enter the lense.   It is helpful that there is photo pro, Amber, on hand at class to help with tips and suggestions.   Some of my photos turned out a little yellow, so I will have to get to the bottom of that next time but I had fun playing with my camera and the food (both were encouraged).

I'm curious what your most sensual food or recipe is?   Talk to me........
