Thread: BlogHer Food

  1. #1
    Serene Vannoy Guest

    Default BlogHer Food

    First thing in the morning, I will BART to the city (in my case, "the
    city" = San Francisco) to attend the BlogHer Food conference with what I
    assume will be hundreds of other food bloggers. Exciting!

    My tentative schedule is below. If you're local, let me know if you're
    going, or if you want to go to the picnic on Sunday, to which everyone's
    invited, whether or not they attended the con.

    There's an online food foto course, which I think was written about by D
    Lebovitz.

    Flickr.com has a couple of active groups on food photography:

    <http://www.flickr.com/groups/foodphotography/> is mostly about
    technique, while
    <http://www.flickr.com/groups/afoodphotograpyexperience/> is mostly the
    shots themselves without much technical discussion.

    Also, <http://www.flickr.com/groups/strobist/>, which discusses lighting
    and low cost means of achieiving same is quite helpful for just about
    anybody interested in photography regardless of the subjects they shoot.

    It's a vacation post, if you'd read it. Whatever. It sounds pretty dumb to
    put down one of the most successful food writers with an online presence.
    He does not teach photography. He writes books. What are your fides?

    You're the one who posted about a photo course.

    Good thing, too. The photos suck. Mostly out of focus, abysmal
    lighting, not to mention jes plain boring.

    Do you put that on your resume?

    I only ask because in spite of how it sounds it indicates someone who gives
    a ****, a rarity to most employers. ;-)
