Basic Food Photography Class 2013



I received a mailer from 50 Feasts today announcing their ONLY Basic Food Photography Class for 2013.

This information couldn’t have come at a worse time. I don’t think I can set aside the money for the registration, although I’ve been on the fence all year about signing up for this.

If you’ve read my blog for awhile, you probably noticed how I’m a frustrated food photographer. My Shoot. Eat. Blog., and Iphoneography posts are just two where I mention this. Perhaps I’ve taken for granted that 50 Feasts may choose to stop offering this amazing class that I didn’t really get around to saving up specifically for it.

So I’m torn. There are only five slots left for this class of only six students. If I want to take a serious plunge into the wonderful world of food photography, this would be the best time for it. I wish I could say that the class would be an investment, but I can’t honestly treat it as one. Though others who have taken the class probably do so with the intent of going into business as a food photographer, I still am seeing it as a hobby and as a way to enrich myself. Not necessarily looking to it as a career, but it would also be a nice option, if it turns out that I truly have the talent for it. Sigh.

Will I or Won’t I?

Meanwhile…

I saw these custom pins from pinsforanything.com and my mind went wild with ideas! It would have been so cool and special to gift unique pins for each person on my gift list this year. But it looks like they have a minimum order of 100. Oh well.

I think that is great. Go and grab it. If you think you really need it, then why not? I for one, is among those, who wants to study and get serious with photography. I always find alibis instead of finding time to it. LOL!

Personally, I try to learn/start something new each year. Getting new skills will enrich you and help you become more confident as well! :) It will earn you more friends/network too! Good luck! :)

I am a bit interested in that photography class too. But I need to purchase my DSLR first before attending such classes.

I think, you should go for it! Learning something that we love to do is really great. We may get positive things in the end because of our dedication and patience.

I feel you. It’s like me confused if I’ll go to a make-up workshop or not since I find it a bit expensive for me but if I suggest that if you can afford your food photography class go for it even if it’s just for the hobby or pursuing career. It can improve your skills :)

I am also torn about the workshops lined up at Manila Workshops. Although I would like to enrich myself with new learning, my budget is also limited.

have you ever come across the “pinch of yum” food blog? she wrote an ebook on food photography:

http://pinchofyum.com/resources/resources-for-food-bloggers

scroll down and click on “Tasty Food Photography” to see excerpts from the book. i haven’t bought it, but it looks promising. plus it’s only $19. the “income” tab up top is pretty inspiring as well, especially for us bloggers. ;)
