Two weeks ago I went to the most fun Sweetgreen passport event: "Winter Food Photography 101 with Mass Musings". Kayte from Mass Musings absolutely killed hosting the event. Her energy was captivating and contagious. We started learning the basics of food photography, as well as tips for posting photos on Instagram. I've listed my favorites below. The second half of the event was a "photo challenge" and our group won with this picture:
Sweetgreen gave out some fun swag, food credit, and incredible salads, such as their Detox Salad. I'm excited to use my food credit on their Guacamole Greens Salad and a Hibiscus Lime Iced Tea. Nom nom nom…and now the tips and tricks you've all been waiting for:
1) VSCO Cam and Afterlight are both GREAT photo editing apps.
2) Use the grid function for the "rule of thirds".
3) Always ask "What do I want to present to my audience?"
