Sometimes as a photographer you get asked to take photos that are little outside your area of expertise.
Last week I had a classic example of this;
I was asked to take some photos at a 21st birthday party. That's cool I can do that. Event photos are kinda my thing these days, but I was specifically asked to make sure i got some photos of the Grazing Table that was set up.
Now this was an amazing table of food, laid out and looking delicious and I had to get shots of it before it was devoured.
Normally food photos are definitely not my thing, but this was a special occasion, so I sucked it up and gave it a shot.
Using my trusty Nikon D750 and tamron f2.8 17-50mm I think I did ok. With the benefit of hindsight I would have used my Tokina f2.8 70-200mm as well to really capture the depth of field and throw the background out of focus. But I didn't, and I cant go back in time so we live and we learn.
I actually had fun shooting the party, and the Grazing Table, and it has reinvigorated my creative juices to get into event photography more.
So if you have something coming up, give me a yell and I'll give you a competitive quote, and
if you need a caterer consider The Graze Station, you can find her (Kate) on Facebook by following the link >>>
