Foodbuzzing Photography

By Danielleabroad @danielleabroad
One of the many things I loved about this past weekend, was being able to explore new neighborhoods. The last time I was in San Francisco (on that solo road trip of mine) I spent an entire day wandering the bay city's streets, yet I still wasn't able to see everything. This time around, I found the Ferry Building, strolled through Union Square, walked around the true downtown area, and became very well-acquainted with SoMa (the district South of Market).  foodbuzzing photography On one particular morning (Saturday), I did all four while also managing to attend the DSLR-free Zone session at Foodbuzz HQ - a presentation in which three bloggers shared tips on how to create a beautiful picture without any of that fancy equipment. I learned a lot. foodbuzzing photography Greg explained his method: simplify (photo dimension), narrate the story (color), compose (set the stage), place props, refine image, and simplify once more. He told us that the higher angles, the better (especially with food). foodbuzzing photography Angi suggested we get up close to our subject and use natural light. She also spoke about finding your photography voice by studying what it is that attracts you to the photos you love. foodbuzzing photography Chuck said, "the best camera is the one that's with you." He shared how he evaluates the setting to identify the light sources and direction of light in order to create the best photo possible on his iPhone. foodbuzzing photography Speaking of improving my "photography skills" - quite a few weeks ago, I received the Lonely Planet Travel Photography: A Guide to Taking Better Pictures from Planet Gear. To be honest, I'm only slowly but surely practicing technique on landscape scenes, people, and macro shots (hello, food) but I do feel as though I'm becoming more well rounded. Also, Planet Gear is amazing. I joined for free and now have access to sales on travel gear, apparel, and destinations at prices up to 70%. Please note: although they reached out to introduce themselves to me, I am very genuinely a fan. As for the remaining Foodbuzz Festival, to be continued...
