While staying at Blue Inn On The Beach on Plum Island, MA, Yankee Magazine arranged a wonderful food photography workshop with Krissy from Cottage Farm. (If you haven’t seen Krissy’s work, go check it out immediately.) The team at Yankee Mag brought lots of wonderful products from New England. Think crackers, cheese, chutneys, and desserts. Krissy was tasked with showing us how to style the food for a great photograph. My biggest takeaway… food isn’t perfect and it shouldn’t look perfect. So dig into the cheese, cut the fruit, open the jars and add a spoon.
As a someone who loves food photography, this workshop was a dream come true. Thank you to Yankee Magazine for bringing your Best of New New England food award winners. And thank you to Krissy for sharing your food photography wisdom with us. I can’t wait to join Krissy at one of her workshops in the future.
