2020 Schedule - March Topic was created by Bear
Projected − “Entice Me” (Albany Interclub Topic)
An image where the main subject is food.


Food photography is about showing off creations from the kitchen.
Usually, it’s the final stage that we see, where preparation and presentation come together to find harmony.
However, consider macro photography focused on food which is all about the details, textures, and shapes. It looks directly at the ingredients.
Or perhaps a small part of the finished product rather than the style.
Consider market displays.
Styling and layout are of most importance when composing food photography, sometimes it is not only about the food but about the props that food is presented with, the props give an ambience to the image of rustic, sophistication etc.,
Understanding the basics of food styling is pivotal for photographers looking to create stunning food imagery.
A few points to consider:
Keep Portions small, must have good lighting, plates are props too, frame from the angle you are shooting, be prepared and shoot relatively quickly, food deteriorates and does not look appetising, food should look real, colours, textures, shapes add to the composition, create a story, experiment with surfaces and show scale and dimension.
Look at what others are doing.

We had 39 scrumptious and enticing food images submitted for our topic. Remember this is the same topic we nominated for Albany Interclub later in the year. Hopefully everyone has some great images now and when we get the critique from our judge you may wish to refine your images or get inspiration from the images of others to create something else for the interclub competition.

Thanks again to Jill Harrison for her mini-presentation at club night last month that I am sure helped everyone in getting their images ready for tonight.

Feel free to post comments here and prompt discussion on the images in the album. If you are a facebook user, there is a post on our (PGoB) facebook page that you might want to look at and engage in discussions there also.

Enjoy.
Thanks
Jodie
