As you know from my last post, I was asked to do a presentation on food photography for food entrepreneurs by Foorpreneur. What do I talk about? This is supposed to be an educational experience for the students but, it does have a self promotion aspect to it as well. After all, that is why I am donating my time.
I decided to do a powerpoint presentation with three objectives.
- What is the value of good food photography?
- Helpful hints on doing the food photography on your own.
- What to expect at a professional photo shoot.
So where do I begin? We’ve all heard the expression “We eat with our eyes” but what does that mean? I decided start my talk with how an image must substitute for all of the senses that we use for eating. I’ve already posted the original version of this presentation but it keeps changing. So, have a look at the final version. I guess that after I do this tomorrow for the students, and entertain their questions, it will change again.
