Explore new ways

of photography:

this was the food event

Cologne June 28 2020


In Cologne's trendy local ZEN on Aachener Straße, new photographic approaches were taken on Sunday, June 28th, namely to photograph optically beautiful plates in such a way that the mouth watered. Many sets were built, on which we each worked with different light sources. After the introduction and the set-up, we were divided into four crews, each of whom "let off steam" with their own plates from the kitchen.


This event was special. We wanted to show that you shouldn't let the crisis get you down and that you could develop your photographic desire.

Here are a few impressions from the event.

My name is Nicole Karp. I am Guido's wife - and I did not "do my doctorate at the registry office". That means I am the woman behind the scenes and do not call myself a photographer.

Unfortunately, someone failed in our event at the last second. Since Guido wanted to maintain the dynamic of 3 participants per group, he "threw me into the cold water". I can cook, I have never photographed the food with the exception of a few cell phone snapshots. Macro photography: my premiere.
