Back into the kitchen we go to explore Food Faces. As simple as a banana and 2 apples on the chopping board or a white plate with 2 eggy eyes and a sizzled bacon smile. Or you might decide to decorate some cupcakes or cookies or just use uncooked vegetables and fruit. We've already had a couple of faces from Ursula and Lottie for the breakfast assignment and just a few weeks ago students were making pancake faces.
At the bottom of the page you'll also see some Food landscapes - made in Click lessons. These can take a lot of dried beans and pasta and fresh food so make sure you have permission before attempting anything this ambitious.
Remember 1. Be careful with Focus. Review your image after shooting - and if you need to - shoot another one. 2. Most of the the time this will work best if the camera is directly above the food face. 3. Shoot in the kitchen or outside - lots of lovely light around at the moment - use it. 4. Use a simple board or table as your background. 5. We delayed this for a while until the supermarkets were full of food again, but you still need to ask permission of parents - and should probably keep it simple
