White on Rice Couple Photography Workshop {Giveaway Winner}

A few weeks ago the Diane and Todd at the White on Rice Couple offered an amazing photography workshop to 10 readers.  I was lucky enough to be one of them.

The workshop was extremely fulfilling in so many ways. I was able to meet amazing, sweet and very talented bloggers, ate wonderful food that Diane and Todd made for us; also, it was not solely photography based. It was also about Jennie Perillo at In Jennie's Kitchen. All proceeds from the Workshop went to her and her children.  Bloggers Without Borders.

It was incredible to meet all these lovely people that I have come to know and very much appreciate!

Diane and Todd are the most knowledgable, friendly and sweet people I've ever met. They love the thought and passion behind photography.  During the workshop they mentioned many times photography is not about the food, blog hits or money. It's about capturing the true essence of the subject and appreciating it's true depth and soul.  Wow, how true this is!

They taught us about 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock light.  Each angle really changes the entire picture.  I, personally, never knew about this 'photography clock'.  Essentially, play with your food.  Find the best light angle that makes your subject standout; sometimes it's just personal preference.  I'm a big 12 o'clock fan (backlight), and most of my food photos are taken with this natural light.  

All the beautiful food Diane and Todd made for us
