FSTD11H3: Food and Media: Documenting Culinary Traditions Through Photography and Videography

This course combines elements of a practicum with theoretical approaches to the study and understanding of the place of food in visual culture. It aims to equip students with basic to intermediate-level skills in still photography, post-processing, videography, and editing. It also seeks to further their understanding of the ways in which scholars have thought and written about food and the visual image, with special emphasis on the “digital age” of the last thirty years.
