CLICK is a monthly food photography event. It is a theme-based contest. You do not need a blog to participate. Each month, entries will be invited based on a culinary ingredient or concept. More about it HERE.
Fall is here. Our veggie garden is dying down, and farmers’ markets are closing for the season. However, there are some staples that make an appearance on our table throughout the year.
CLICK kicks off with one such ingredient.
CLICK an egg/eggs in any form – raw, cooked, partly hatched, we’d like to see it as long as it is edible. (We mean ‘egg’ quite literally. THIS is not an egg.)
As for cooked eggs, eggs should be the MAIN ingredient. The volume of eggs in a recipe should be higher than or equal to any other ingredient in the dish.
For instance, this eggstraordinary creme brulee has one cup each of egg and cream – which are the primary ingredients in the dish.
Likewise, this angel food cake recipe has 1.5 cups of egg whites – greater in volume than any other ingredient.
A cake with just a couple of eggs in it is not acceptable.
The picture should highlight eggs or the role of eggs in a recipe.
Don’t buy or eat eggs? CLICK eggs in a store, farm, in a restaurant, anywhere you see them, cooked or uncooked.
DEADLINE: the 20th of October, 2007, midnight, Eastern Standard Time.

I’m so excited to be one of the first co-judges for this event! As some of you know, I’m an amateur food photographer…meaning I picked up my camera about 8 months ago and just started shooting food. I even had to learn how to get past the automatic settings on my Canon Rebel XT after month 5. It’s not about the camera. It’s about your love and respect for the ingredients. What makes the CLICK event so captivating is that it is based on one theme each month. You’ll get to see and experience the raw beauty of one type of food through many different eyes.
When Jai and Bee made me a “shameless request”, as they put it, to be one of the first co-judges of their photography event, I was honored and excited. I love the idea that CLICK is based on a theme each month. This makes the event so unique. I see this event as a working group for anyone who has an eye, talent and imagination to take photos and would like to improve their techniques, skills and ideas. CLICK is not about extreme “techie” pictures, it’s basically about you – how you portray the theme or object and how you share it with us. Simply have fun with your camera and the motive in front of you. The rest you will learn as you go along. It’s how I got started over a year and half ago and even today I am learning everyday. CLICK is the type of event that will certainly help you progress, so start clicking. Good luck everyone!
