Blissdom Food Photography Round Table

I am BEYOND excited to announce that on Saturday, January 29th from 9 -11AM

Heather Solos and Deanna Garretson and I are going to be hosting a FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY round table at the Cocoa Bean.

Dessert at Volare (tiramisu)

Come to eat, hang out, have fun relaxed discussions about food, Blissdom, photography AND we’ll even have a set up where you can ask questions and take pictures of different plates of food and practice lighting, composition — etc…

If you’ve ever wanted to know more about food photography, have immediate feedback and help with composition, lighting and tricks and tips —Β  this is your chance!

We’ll talk more in depth about how much we love our spouses who have learned that all food must be photographed before being eaten ;-), restaurant photography etiquette and answer any and all questions to the best of our ability about food photography.

So, if you’re going to be around the Opryland Hotel on Saturday morning — come stop in and say Hi!Β  Bring your camera and your questions and your appetite, if you want!

PLUS — if you see us around during lunches and want to take pics of the food and ask a few questions, then, feel free! πŸ™‚

This is going to fun, informal and informative << see what I did there?

If you want to come on Saturday — this is not limited to the #foodtribe or the #photographytribe either!
