Readers who have been following my meandering in the world of writing will know that I started blogging for Great British Chefs. A dynamic site focused on recipes from British Chefs. Part of the attraction of recipes on line is the photography and last night, Pebble Soup team attended a Food Photography Workshop organised by GBC, lead by David Griffen.
The event took place in the Google London headquarters. After a spot of mingling and a few amazing canapés by Pascal Aussignac, we sat to listen to David.
In a learning situation, I have to confess that my attention span is shorter than that of a nit. Therefore for food photography tips, you might have to look elsewhere as I would be unable to repeat most of what has been said. As from the start, I got stuck on one of David's sentence: 'Something about photographing chefs, they look much better in black and white'.
I was curious to see if they really do.
I supposed Griffen was referring to chefs at work in their kitchen but since I tend to met chefs during interviews, my picture galery contains a collection of talking chefs. It was time to give them the black and white treatment.
