Contest!!!


We are hereby announcing a contest… What does it involve? Cooking and photography. You may download the Kosher by Design whole 900 recipe index at: http://bit.ly/KBDrecipeindex. Find a recipe you like – from that index – prepare it, photograph it and send us your best photo.

A few pointers about food photography:

  • Try to get as close a shot of the finished dish as possible.
  • If your photo will include something other than just the dish you prepared, make sure that the main object of attention in your composition still remains the item you made from one of the Kosher by Design recipes.
  • Make sure the lighting (available light, flash, etc.) does not give off some ugly, distracting shadows. If at all possible try to photograph your dish during daylight hours, by a window letting in natural light. If you are using flash bounce it off the ceiling or a wall, as that will balance out the light and diffuse harsher shadows.
  • Prepare your settings in advance. Food looks its best during the first few minutes of preparation and its looks deteriorate as the clock ticks. Colors may change, the way you stacked it up may collapse and so on.
  • Remember, when you photograph food you want to make it inviting, you want the viewer to imagine and taste it with the mind’s eye. As you put the food on the dish, pay attention to the colors, the shapes and the positioning of each piece.

Look at the photos in some of your cookbooks, or look at line at some great food photography by the pros: Lou Manna, Christine Peters, Diana DeLucia, or Michael Ray. You’ll find these photographers have different styles, yet all presents their subjects in mouth watering ways.

The Prize…

The best photo will win a hardbound copy of Suzy Fishbein’s Kosher by Design – Teens and 20-somethings.

Wake up that award winning photographer inside. We can’t wait to see your entries!
