Recently, I have taken some more pictures for my final multimedia project for my photo class. I tried taking some food photos that I would use in my project. The one shown above was the one that came out the best. I used a small depth of field to get the Flatbread to progressively become blurry. The biggest thing I struggled with was focusing on the right part of the Flatbread. There also wasn’t much lighting in the restaurant so I had to battle through that. I’m excited to go back to Buffalo Wild Wings tomorrow night and take more pictures! When I read about food photography I read about how there should be a light source from behind the food, which was something I didn’t have in the restaurant. Overall I’m pretty pleased with my first attempt of food photography despite the lack of lighting and difficulty with focusing.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

This past Monday, I woke up and went to Buffalo Wild Wings to shoot my first group of photos for my final multimedia photo project for my advanced photovisual communications class. I went at 10 am when the restaurant opened to take pictures of the opening servers. I was there for about 45 minutes until I had to leave for Geology. I brought my strobe with me and i’m glad because the restaurant was pretty dark. Definitely going to be the biggest issue I’ll have to deal with. This first photo shoot got me excited for the rest of my project. I can’t wait to start taking some audio and interviews of the servers. Below are some photos I took for my first take!
