Paris — the site for our upcoming photography and travel writing workshops — makes me think about decadent chocolates, unusual cheeses, croissants, wine, and wonderful street cafes serving rich coffee (my favorite).

Since food is on my mind… I challenge you to turn your camera toward exactly that this month. And when I say food, I mean ALL things food — the growing, preparing, and presentation of it… morsels on your plate… restaurants and bars that serve it… and anything else you can think of.

To my mind, a farmer tilling his field illustrates food as much as a child with chocolate on her face does.

You could take pictures of people drinking coffee at a neighborhood coffee shop or focus on solo shots of hors d’oeuvres at a party. Even cooking and eating utensils are fair game.

Remember — good lighting and good composition are key.
