#3 ‘Food’


Theme: Food

I know you’re probably sick of the sight of food by January but it was a topic I wanted to cover so here we go.

Actually, after telling you not just take a selfie in McDonalds, I challenge someone to get a creative shot of something from McDonalds 😉

Other than that as I’ve said in the video it’s up to you. I do like the idea of something local to you that you can educate us about and I’m a portrait photographer at heart so including people in the process of preparing food is always going to work for me.

There’s some examples below but it’s really up to you to go off and look for yourself and then let us know what you’re thinking.


See the details from challenge #1, I don’t want to keep filling each post with the rules.



Here’s a few ideas I quickly found using the method I explain in the inspiration post. Well actually they all came from 500px so thanks if they’re your photos, they’re truly inspiring!



Well I’m afraid you’re on your own for the type of shots above but it’s not too hard, right!

What I have got for you are a couple of links to posts I’ve already covered and suggested in the video above.

Get posting!

It’s over to you!

So anytime now you can start posting your ideas below and any questions you have.

At any time through January you can post your final image and hopefully we’ll get a good selection flowing down in the comments below. Feel free to comment on others’ work and please as stated above give us a bit of commentary to go along with your image and the camera’s settings.
