Food Photography Master Course

A few Sundays ago, we joined other food photographers and food bloggers at the Iron Gate Restaurant for the Food Photography Master Course held by Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture.  We spent a few hours learning from photographer and sustainable farmer Molly Peterson.  Molly is the contributor to the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture's Mobile Market Seasonal Cookbook and the 804ork Cookbook.  Here are some of the pictures we took.
