Phototasting at Cube

Yes, we food bloggers like to take pictures of our food. We are the glutenous paparazzi, amateur food stylists, and pork belly shutterbugs. It wasn’t too long ago when even we here at Dig Lounge were taking bad blurry photos in dark restaurants, without any knowledge of white balance and aperture. Over time we taught ourselves how to take better photos but still lacked that polish and flare. Then came Phototasting to the rescue. But you don’t have to be a blogger to enjoy this class. You just have to love food, and photography.

Taking place on July 31st from 2 to 5 pm, Phototasting is a unique opportunity to learn the in’s and out’s of food photography with the guidance of LA bloggers and the gorgeous regional Italian fare by Cube Cafe. Not only will you practice capturing the gastronomical splendor of Cube Café’s menu, but you’ll meet the faces behind Cube.

This workshop offers simple tips for both point-and-shoot and DSLR cameras and is geared toward photography of dishes in restaurants. Through hands-on demonstrations, you will learn elementary elements of exposure, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and white balance. The interactive presentation will also introduce basic composition and digital post-production techniques.

LA restaurant/food blogger extraordinaires Daily Gluttony and The Kitchy Kitchen will guide attendees through this fun gastro-photo-blogging experience. On the menu: Heirloom Tomato & Fresh Peach Salad with Cube imported Buffalo Mozzarella, 6-year Balsamic & Fruity Olive Oil. Black Truffle Pizza with Mozzarella & Fried Egg; Pancetta-Wrapped Porchetta with Creamy Polenta & Romano Beans; White Nectarine Shortcake with Lemon Verbena & Fresh Cream. Cost of this event is $50 per person. .
