A 30 days Food Photography challenge has been the perfect way to spent my summer. I was scared at the beginning because as you all know life is very busy and adding a daily shooting session I knew it would would have been hard, but then I thought that if you are not willing to push yourself farther you’ll never get better! So I prepared my shooting table and I signed up for the challenge!
As subject for my 30 days I picked eggs and it was a lot of fun. Every day I was focusing on a different aspect of food photography, rather then a new recipe (as I usually do in my regular blogging life).
Composition and story telling were my main goals and I have to say that I fell a little bit more confident on those two topics, but please scroll trough my pictures and tell me what you think. I love honest feedback 🙂
I’ll keep work on all this assignment because al Neel (the workshop instructor) seas: taking action is the only way to improve in photography.
