#08 --- Describe The Elements Of Your Food Story

11 August, 2014
--- Remember the goal – Your end goal is to clearly tell the story of a food dish and what’s going around this dish. This is the story you will capture in a photograph. Additional Clarification – This is storytelling using one frame of photo. This is not a story that usually blogs write about as part of introduction. We are capturing a story about the food and what’s going around that food when you are taking the photo. --- - Step 1 – Start with your story from Day 6. Do you recall it? Hopefully, you’ve written it on a piece of paper of saved it. - Step 2 - For this story, now we will take this to the next level and describe it in finer details. Let’s start - - Define where are you? Are you in a restaurant or street corner? In dining area or porch? - What time of the day is it? - Is this happening in a certain season? - Who all are around the food? Kids or Adults? - Are you eating/drinking something else with it? These are just few questions that you should ask. - What other questions would you ask for your subject? - Step 3 - Document all these decisions and save them. We will use these decisions in the remainder of this challenge. - Step 4 – In the comments below share 1) What questions you asked? 2) Their answers - Step 5 – Optional but Recommended – Make a photograph that communicates the story. Use ALL the details you’ve described as part of Step 2 to create the scene and make the photo.

The story from Day #06 was about drinking my favourite tea. My questions for that photo: - Define where are you? Are you in a restaurant or street corner? In dining area or porch? I am in my living room and have a good time for relax with a cup of my favourite tea. - What time of the day is it? It is early morning. - Is this happening in a certain season? It is hot summer time. - Who all are around the food? Kids or Adults? I am at home alone. My lovely husband just went to his work. - Are you eating/drinking something else with it? No, just drinking a tea. - What dish do you use? It is nice prop from my photo-shooting stuff. - What would be the continuing of this story? I created second part of the story. It is late afternoon and my lovely husband came back from his work. So, now we both have our hot favourite tea in our favourite daily using cup and glass. My tea is still herbal red Sudanese Hibiscus and Charlie's is his favourite green Morrocan mint tea. We are eating some healthy snacks and we are enjoying time together and talking.
