Food in Nature – workshop

Food in Nature – Workshop
by Kristel Schneider

The nice thing about organizing one-on-one workshops  is that you sometimes get funny or unusual requests from your participants.  And yesterday I had to organise a workshop with one of those special requests for a private photography workshop. The participant was a cook and wanted to take images of  Food in Nature.

After looking on the net and into my own cooking books I thought this was not going to be an easy task.  But I liked the request so I agreed to organize this workshop and the date was set for yesterday.  A whole new concept for me, normally I walk in nature and drive around to look for some different sceneries whereas yesterday I had to wait while the cook was ready with some kind of dessert or other dish so that we could place the subject on an old moss-covered tree trunk , in high grass or just in the vegetable garden.

 

I can tell you that food photography is not the same as taking images of wild mushrooms or  landscapes.  Personally I like images that are a bit abstract or with movement but with food you still have to see what is presented. So in the end also it was a learning process for me and although I didn’t have the time to shoot images for my own archive I took some snapshots with my 300mm to give you an idea of what we did with two little fruit pastries.

Now, if you think you also have a nice idea for a private photography one-on-one workshop feel free to contact me so that we can discuss the possibilities.  Click here

  1. Both these photos are fantastic! Excellent colours, composition and light. I think that the idea of taking photos of food in nature is original.
