Food Photography 101

Ever wonder how food looks so amazing in cookbooks and magazines?

Did you know blanching green veggies first makes them pop in a photograph? 

Or that the secret to making meat look juicy and delectable is to brush on a little canola oil right before snapping a picture?

These are just a few of the food photography secrets participants learned in last night’s Food Photography 101 class in the Learning Center. 

Under the guidance of chef/photographer Zach Minot, participants reviewed basic photography principles such as exposure and white balancing, learned tips for the best way to prep food for photography, and took a stab at capturing some of their own images. 

If you participated in the class, we’re eager to see your pictures!  Post them to our fan photos on our Facebook page .
