Food Photography Class

Gee, what should I say as an excuse for again abandoning this blog? I really don't have any other but the classic one, "busy".

Last January, I taught a basic food photography class for The Urban Mama's members in Jakarta. The class held at Sadwich House 71, a nice place with good foods but too small for a food photography class with 20++ participants. They brought different type of cameras (pocket digital camera, dslr, handphone) but came with the same reason, food photography.

At first I didn't mean to teach a food photography class (as I am just rookie in it), I just wanted to help a friend (The Urban Mama founder) who wants to learn more about food photography. Then since some other friends (in TUM) asked the same thing, so I asked her whether is it okay to make it as workshop, and she agreed. Surprisingly, I didn't know that she made it as an official off-air event of TUM. Wow, what a nice surprise!

I asked Vania, my fav foodie blogger, the owner of the famous V-Recipes, to join me in teaching. She said yes and then we started to discuss about the class seriously. We shared the job as I gave the basic photography and food photography and she took the part of styling in food photography (she even brought her props along, cool no!). I was totally excited to teach and to finally meet Vania (yes! we've been communicated through the net, but never met in person).

Unluckily I didn't have time to capture the sandwich provided by the restaurant and neither did Vania. We were to busy answering the questions. I only managed to capture one photo by accident (I was showing my fav angle).

It was really a great experience teaching basic food photography to some enthusiast urban mamas. Thanks alot for coming ladies!
