A Thousand Words by mary elizabeth

They say a picture speaks a thousand words.   As a writer and incessant talker, I’m not sure that’s always true.   But – I could try it.   Maybe I’ll designate a portion of my weekend to silence with a sketchpad – or a sketchpad and a giant bag of old magazines from which to find photos.  This leaves way too much of the interpretation to my audience, but maybe that’s the point.   I’m the sort of person who likes to describe and make jokes and otherwise illustrate every thought I have so as to leave listeners with no doubt what my much belabored point might be.   Poor things.   Okay, let’s give it a try:

What am I thinking?  How am I feeling?   Was that more pleasant than listening to me tell you all about it?   Did you get a thousand words out of it?

We have a class called Food Styling here at Living Light.   It’s super fun and taught by the fabulous Cristina Archila.   It’s all about making your food smile for the camera and how to capture it to its best advantage.   Whether you’re publishing your own cookbook or just keeping your friends current on Facebook, this is a great way to maximize your food’s photographic appeal.   I haven’t taken this class yet but I’m looking forward to it.   I see all the tools and supplies Cristina uses and I can’t wait to find out what they’re all for.   Anyhow – this class is so beneficial we’re going to include it as a requirement for Gourmet Raw Food Chef certification beginning next year.   There are two opportunities to take it this year still, and it’s open to everyone!

    […] four speechless minutes in my whole life.  So, I guess it’s time to re-test the theory about pictures speaking words and post some from our last Food Styling class.  They really are amazing.  Wouldn’t you like […]
