Taking pictures of what you ate is kind of becoming the norm these days. Look around any restaurant and you're bound to see diners snapping away with their cameras, whether they be ginormous DSLR's, standard point and shoot cameras, or smart phones.
Are you one of these people? Do you wish that your food photography looked a little better? Ever wondered how to get one of those cool looking photos where the food's in focus and the background's kinda blurry?
If so, you're in luck because I am excited to announce that Phototasting is coming back on Saturday, July 31st!
What is Phototasting, you ask?
Phototasting is a unique food sampling and restaurant photography workshop where participants are able to both shoot and savor a restaurant's cuisine. Local food blogger The Kitchy Kitchen and I will be introducing simple tips on basic nerdy photography lingo like white balance, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, exposure, and composition and guiding participants as they shoot some of the restaurant's dishes before getting a taste!
But wait, there's more! Are you ready for some really exciting news? This particular workshop will be held at Cube Café and Marketplace. Yes, that Cube...the cute little cafe and gourmet shop on La Brea with the delicious regional Italian cuisine focusing on seasonal ingredients.
Delicious Italian food, food photography tips and a chance to meet other food and photography enthusiasts like yourself? It's really a win-win. Reserve online for $50/pp at http://bit.ly/phototasting. Spaces are limited and the workshop did sell out last time, so be sure to reserve your space soon!
