As you may remember, I was a part of a food photography workshop that went on this past Friday, called FoodSnap. I had a great time hanging out with all of the contributing photographers - a wonderful bunch of people! My favorite part of the whole event was not actually at the event, but the night before, wining and dining with the photo crew at Olivar. Yummy food + a couple bottles of fine wine = happy food photographers.
Well, I didn't take any photos of us enjoying ourselves at dinner, but I did take some shots during the event. There were lots of great vendors, who donated their time and products for the event. And we were lucky to have Tyler Rebman (a food/prop stylist) there to help design and set up the tables for the attendees to shoot and become inspired.
more Frost doughnuts, they were quite tasty...and they had some interesting flavors - I didn't try these myself, but I heard that the Tang doughnut was good, as was the doughnut with bacon, yup, bacon.
the Wink cupcakes were absolutely delightful! To look at and to eat...
Kathy Casey's gelee's were impressively flavorful and almost had me drunk with two! Talk about jello shot cocktail - can't go back to the old-school recipe after trying these.
In Bloom Design from Bellingham, Wa arranged some lovely vases for us - they were great, very colorful and unique.
Red Ticking offered a different flare to the set ups - I 'helped' Tyler organize this table...and when I say 'helped', I mean that I started it...and realized that it was a mess, and asked for 'help' - Tyler made it pretty :)
Thanks to everyone who participated! It was a great exercise, and I hope those that attended now have a better grasp of what goes into food photography, and can achieve more successful pictures because of it! Have fun!
