That last few days have been kind of very unusual. I have had dreams about talking to some famous food photographers and seeing some of you sitting in this coffee shop in a small circle listening to the advice these photographers share. Then I have also dreamt that I am sitting in a airplane and the safety announcement is in my voice. Sigh! Side effects of listening to your own voice over and over again, while editing those audio interviews for umhs and ahs.
So these dreams and thoughts and daydreams… all point to one direction. No! not love. A new project. What is this project? Something I have been wanting to do more and more. Last few food photography and styling interviews have been so useful to me and I hope, to you as well, that I have made up my mind to do more of these. In fact, my goal with this project is to interview every outstanding food photographer and food stylist in the world. The keyword is outstanding – these artists whose photography/styling work is amazing and really moves people.
I strongly believe as a student of photography we have a lot to learn from outstanding photographers as well as by looking, observing, seeing and studying stunning photos. By doing these interviews I hope you would get to know these food photographers and learn from them.
But I have a problem…
… and I don’t think I will be able to solve it without you. Yes, you! Well here’s the problem. I don’t know what to call this thing. We need a name for this project. What should we call this thing? What should be the name of this project? Something to do with food, but then it should also relate to interviewing… Can you help? Suggest a name or two (or three) in the comments below.
