I spend a lot of time focusing on the nitty gritty details of food… the sheen of the chocolate, the drip of the syrup, are there the right number of crumbs? In fact, July’s challenge, Sugar, really was all about the details, producing some really wonderful shots that were ooey-gooey, colorful, or just simply sugary. It was also great that folks started to participate more and leave comments! Critiquing helps us all develop… so keep it up!
This month, it’s time to step back and get some perspective. If a tart sits in a forest with no one around, does anyone taste it? What a waste of a tart! Let’s see your shots that feature both Food and People. People eating, people thinking about eating, maybe people who have just eaten & have some sticky memories of their treat. Faces aren’t a requirement… the hint of a person will do and bring a new kind of context to your photo. Here’s a hint: if you have access to one, kids make great models with food!
Oh, and as a side note, I’ve started tagging my Still Life With comment feedback with “[Still Life With… theme X]” so people understand the comments a bit more. Feel free to follow along with this convention… but you don’t have to either. But do keep the comments coming.
The usual rules and are up on the Flickr group… the things like be constructive, take the photos during the month if possible, 3 photos per person and the last day is August 31st.
(PS.: If you get your 3 photos done, and want more to do, make sure you participate in Foodography #8. This month’s theme is Liquid!)
