Camera Strap Giveaway in Honor of Phototasting!

Do you like to take photos of what you eat? Do you wish your photos looked better? Do you wonder how people take photos in dark restaurants without using flash?

Wonder no more.
A second session of Phototasting, a unique food sampling and restaurant photography workshop, will take place at Cube Café and Marketplace this Saturday, July 31, 2-5 p.m.

Yes, Cube! I loooooooooove Cube! See?

Sample Cube’s seasonal Italian cuisine while learning restaurant and food photography tips from Rants and Craves and The Kitchy Kitchen. Bring your DSLR or point-and-shoot!

The event costs only $50, which is a steal for both instruction and some superb nibbles.
Read accounts by some satisfied customers from the the first Phototasting session:
Space is limited. Phototasting sold out last time, so get your tickets now!

Be sure to follow Phototasting on Twitter for updates and information on future sessions!

Now that you've read this far, you might be wondering, "Hey! Where's the giveaway?"

Well, here it is.
Up for grabs is The Black 'n' Tan, a lovely 35" camera strap by Phat Straps! This is no ordinary camera strap. It's long enough for you to sling your camera cross-body, and it features a really convenient quick-release system that allows you to switch out different straps with ease.

I recently bought four of these straps, and I'm going to give The Black 'n' Tan to one lucky reader because I think these straps and Phototasting are both awesome!

How do you enter this giveaway? Two ways!
  1. Leave a comment with your e-mail address if I don't already know it.
  2. Tweet the following: Improve your food pics @Phototasting this Saturday 7/31 @cube_LA! Get tix now to eat and shoot!
After tweeting, leave a second comment with the permalink to your tweet as evidence.

Comment + tweet = two chances to win The Black 'n' Tan! Yes, double your chances just by tweeting!

This giveaway closes at the end of this Thursday, July 29. Get your comments and tweets in before midnight! I will announce the camera strap winner on Friday, July 30.

Good luck!
