"March, 2014 Assignment - Cover Shot - Food and Wine Magazine"



Please read the Rules and Objectives before you submit a photo for this Assignment.

As I mentioned at the beginning of January, the theme for the entire year will be the "cover shot". Each month will be a different magazine. You are the magazine photographer and your assignment is to capture the perfect image for the cover of that month's magazine. You will have complete freedom to choose the subject of your image so long as it is appropriate for the chosen magazine; however, the image must clearly be "cover worthy". Your image(s) must be presented in the "portrait" format as if it were going directly on the cover of the magazine. Landscape oriented shots will not be permitted. You may "photoshop" the magazine cover name on to the image for effect, but it is not required.

The March "cover shot" Assignment is “Food and Wine Magazine”.

There are no other restrictions except that your image(s) MUST BE TAKEN DURING THE MONTH OF MARCH, 2014. I have noticed that some have used archived photos to satisfy an assignment (i.e. photos NOT taken during the month of the assignment). Using images taken prior to March, 2014, is NOT PERMITTED and will be deleted. Please honor the rules of the assignment.

As always, I emphasize “artistic”. Strive to be different; let your artistic juices flow when composing your image. Is the image you post for this assignment one you would be willing to frame and hang on your wall?? Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the assignment, and creativity just to name a few.

Also, over the course of the month, you may post no more than four (4) images. I want you to be discriminating in the selection of images you post for this assignment – PLEASE POST ONLY YOUR BEST SHOTS!!!

Also, please:

• Be imaginative and go for the unusual shot. After all, that’s what makes this fun!!!
• Do not use a shot in your archive – the whole point of this exercise is that it is an assignment.
• Submit only artistic shots. Naturally, we want to see your very best work with regard to subject matter and composition - translation – snapshots are not permitted.
• Include shooting data, and ideally, please include your thinking behind the scene – what were you trying/hoping to capture, and did you succeed?

As discussed here, the top five images will be selected by the previous month’s winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image with be added to our new Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery.

I look forward to seeing how you fulfill this assignment!

Good luck!!!

Rob

In response to Reply # 0



Okay, so my wife and I are vacationing from the Wisconsin winter and we're in Santa Fe. So, I thoght that a Food & Wine cover shot in the New Mexican tradition would be appropriate.

D800, Nikkor 20mm at ISO 100, f/13. A 3 exposure HDR varying from .6 to 1.3 secs.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, ISO 100, f/16, 1/4s, Manual, Tripod, Silver reflector, no flash
Wanted to make use of natural light coming in window. Found I needed a bit of reflector to get label on bottle of wine to stand out more. Minimal post processing. Believe it took almost as long to figure out how to insert labels in Photoshop (first time doing so) as the initial photo set up took. Definitely learned a something new about the software. Was thinking of a shot of something tasty with a glass of wine.


Its always important to remember that no matter where you're at, there you are.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8, ISO 100, f/16, 0.4s, Manual, Tripod, No flash.
Wanted to showcase Wisconsin Cheese. Carving the flying W out of cheese was a little challenging. Thought the grapes complimented the red of the cheese and label on the wine bottle.

Sorry for misspelling Pairings - caught too late to change.

#7. "Foods of Wisconsin"
In response to Reply # 0



It's been a long, cold winter in Wisconsin. To celebrate I thought some traditional Wisconsin foods should grace the cover of Food & Wine.

D800, Nikon 28mm 1.8G, ISO 200, f/16, 3 blended exposures
