Update – This is an old series. To participate in an update 30 day series, visit this page.
Today we are very excited to announce a 31-Day series on this food photography blog to improve your food photos. We are calling it “31 Days of Food Photography Tips” or 31DFTP.
Starting July 1st, we will post a food photography lesson every day with a simple assignment for the next 31 days. So what is it going to be like?
Posts and Tips on Food Photography
During this time, we would publish 31 posts that will focus on helping you make better food images. These posts would range from some critical concepts of photography to some actionable food photography tips.
The initial posts in this series are focused on those of you who are just getting started and we hope these first few posts help you to grab your camera and start taking photos. Most of the remaining posts should also help those who have been taking non-food related photos for a while and have ventured into food photography recently.
Every post will be accompanied by a related assignment. Completing these assignments will give your greater and deeper understanding about the concept and help you better comprehend the tips. Importance of doing assignments is well explained by this Chinese proverb:
“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.”
Our hope is that you would spend few minutes reading the post and then act on the tip or advice by doing these assignments.
Special Weekly Assignments
In addition to our daily assignments we will be sending special weekly assignments to those of you who are interested in taking your food photography to the even next level.
These special weekly assignments are not for everyone but for only those who are serious about food photography. These special assignments will be available only via email by joining below.
In addition to these special assignments, we would send weekly wrap ups at the end of each week of the 31-day series to this list.
If you just want to learn few tips, you will get lot of information during the next 31 days and do not have to sign up for these special assignments. Again, this list is only for those who are serious about food photography.
Submit Food Photography Tips & Win Photography Books
We also encourage our readers to share food photography tips on their own blogs in form of a blog post. After you’ve published your food photo tips, submit the link to your specific post (not your blog) using this submission form. Please fill out the form completely, specially your contact details.
During this series, we would compile the submissions and share them with everyone so that we all can learn from your post.
At the end of the series, we would randomly giveaway bundle of eBooks from Craft and Vision to one participant who has submitted a blog post about their food photography tip.
Please note: For this contest, we would be only including those posts that are published during the 31 days of this series.
If you don’t have a blog you can submit your tips in the comments section of this post and the daily posts as well. We may add a separate gift for commenters, and once finalized we will announce this separately.
