  • Assignment: "Food Photography"

    This week's assignment is Food Photography - make our mouth's water!
    Check this out on the blog if you need help.

    This is example is from Sime:

    you tart..., originally uploaded by gtvone.

    A review of the rules might be helpful:

    1. The image you submit should be taken between the July 9 (when it was announced) and July 23 (up until one of the moderators closes the the mini-contest).

    2. EXIF data needs to be intact. It helps if you can include the main points (including camera, lens, date taken, ISO, shutter speed and aperture) in the text of your message.

    3. Your post must include "Assignment: Food" to show your permission to count it for the contest.

    4. Only one entry per member (if you can't restrain yourself until the end of the first week you can post two or three separate pictures but your entry should be in a separate post and the only marked with the text above).

    For everyone, please do not repeat other people's photos by quoting them until the contest is over. If you want to comment on or discuss an entry you can use a link to it (or just delete the picture from the quoted text).

    Next week: ""Ten Minutes From Home" (walk, bike, drive 10 min. from where you live. Shoot.)"

    I'm looking forward to see the contributions in this assignment. Yummy! I guess I will get very hungry by looking at these, so I should write down my own weight and watch out for any increase

                Make your mouth water, hmmmm.

                Sauted vegetables for topping over pasta. Looks dropped in a campfire but it's chopped dried basil. The onions smell delicious.

                      Too late for assignment

                      This was taken too early for the assignment but thought I'd share it.

                      Yes, it looked ugly but it sure tasted good.

                      Oh, it was a fish in case anyone was wondering.

                      Camera: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XTi
                      ISO: 100
                      Exposure: 1/60 sec
                      Aperture: f/4.5
                      Focal Length: 34mm

                            Man I might have to put up more than one photo for this assignment. Only one for the contest of course. I have photos of at least 20 different dishes that I took for the menu at my restaurant. I will upload them and put up a couple here.
