At Bite Club: Four Tips for Great Food Photography

This post contains advertising / Dieser Artikel enthält Werbung

I have been taking about one million photos of food in my life-time, or so it feels, and have come to a couple of important conclusions: I personally don’t like to make a fuzz about the act of photographing when I’m actually out  eating, especially when I’m with friends, so I will rarely bring in the big guns but prefer small, handy cameras. However, I appreciate food presented in fine imagery, so I need to find a balance between these two poles. Many times, I will use my iPhone, currently the XR, to shoot the snack in front of me, because it’s the quickest, least obtrusive way and provides really good material for my blog or social media. Especially when I’m at markets or busy events, like last week’s Bite Club. This street food market is certainly the most buzzy: located just by the Spree it comes with a mix of fun vendors, a big bar and loud music. Not a space where you want to set up a photoshoot for your one dish.
Also factoring in: I actually like to eat my food fresh and hot, so I can’t and don’t want to take too long.

Coming Up: VEGGIE BITE CLUB

Dreams do come true… I’ve always wanted to throw a street food party that was 100% meat-free, and the time has finally come: this Sunday will see the very first vegan and vegetarian Bite Club, with all my favorite street food vendors celebrating plants. Instead of clean eating, this feast will focus on indulgence – from the best burgers, to spicy salads, Sichuan noodles, hearty hummus, most delicious ice cream, and much, much more. I invited a couple street food stars who usually wouldn’t do vegetarian food, and challenged them to bring their deliciousness to the meat-free table. And all of this will go down at the beautiful venue of Funkhaus right by the Spree. Come celebrate the final summer weekend with us!

Street Food in Berlin: Bite Club

Beyond doubt, there’s been somewhat of a street food craze happening in our lovely small town of Berlin. It feels like everyone and there mom now does a street food stall, every mall has a street food court and every day of the week can be spend on a street food market. However, the success of a street food event is decidedly depending on the food quality of its vendors, and since Berlin is still new in the food business, there are only so many good chefs making delicious and street appropriate food, consequently, not every event applying the much coveted street food label to itself has managed to create a worth while foodie experience. Next to my forever favorite event Street Food Thursday, there’s one serious contender for the crown: Bite Club. The outdoor market is back on its original turf, and has assembled amazing talent, making the club better than ever! Enjoy my favs (and I haven’t even tried them all) and mark your calendars with June 5th for the next Bite Club!

At Bite Club Mitte: Adelina Ivan

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin is never only about design based in Berlin – besides myriads of newcomers from all over Germany, it regularly attracts designers from other European countries with one of the most steady participants being Romania.
The Romanian fashion scene might be small, but it has its highlights and certainly a powerful support from local audience and government. For over four seasons a selection of Romanian designers have been showing their latest work at Berlin fashion week and the designers used the time to enjoy all the amenities of our city. Like Adelina Ivan, who I met at Bite Club Mitte this past Saturday, where she not only presented her new designs but also happily indulged in the vegan treats Mitte’s favorite street food market had to offer.
