I am steadily gaining back ground in photojournalism. For a while after college, I focused on 35mm film photography. Firstly I only had a 35mm film camera. And secondly, I do greatly enjoy the mindset, the deliberate nature, in taking pictures using film.
However, as I have been applying for jobs in photojournalism and really wanting to go that route as well, I have found it important- and fun- to update my portfolio with all branches of photojournalism. So far I have gone back and done sports (hula-hoop), food, and now concert photography.
I still have a ways to go, and lots more to cover. But I am enjoying this goal- to just keep shooting!
With the advent of the digital camera in my life, I am beginning to take pictures of things which did not even get one click of the shutter from my film camera. I have a freedom with the digital to learn and practice different styles of photography.
One of those new areas is food photography. This is an area I have never really experimented with, but have seen how beautifully it can be done by following my friend Dana Shultz through her blog, My Little Celebration.
Already I try to cook with a certain amount of presentation, hopefully that makes the transition a bit easier for me. Anyway, here are a first few tryin’s in food photography.
