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.


“The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.” ~ Mitch Hedberg

Mole Poblano with Queso Blanco

Ha!!! No surprise there.

CHEESE [cheeeeez] n.
a blob of dairy, white or yellow, sometimes with holes or veins, more expensive if mouldy, often stinky, usually ugly and notoriously hard to photograph.

“For centuries, people thought the moon was made of green cheese. Then the astronauts found that the moon is really a big hard rock. That’s what happens to cheese when you leave it out.”

For the vegans, there’s its uglier cousin tofu.

“If anyone found a finger in his tofu, please let me know. It’s mine. ~ Alec Baldwin

A dish with one tablespoon of invisible silken tofu does not qualify.

1. Make them wonder how your picture is related to the theme.

2. Stitch two or three pics together to make a diptych or triptych.

3. Have them use their imagination to excavate your picture from beneath a copyright notice smack in the centre.

4. Distract them with datelines and text in huge font that says “STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE WITH MASCARPONE AND SEVENTEEN OTHER THINGS”.

5. Distract them some more with big, colourful borders that compete with the pic for attention.



(available for a month)

    The longer I blog (it’s been 6 months), the more I’m focusing on the photography and loving it! I’ve been seeing some of the contestant’s photos on their individual sites and just became aware of Click! during the red series. I hope to participate somewhere down the road. Great event!
