Discovering Food Photography

WRITTEN BY: lfunke

Story by Michiah Posey, Michiah Dezirae Photography After four years of photography classes at Nossi, I have found a specific passion for food and drink photography. Food Photography was a class that provided my first real introduction to this field, but it was my Fine Art Photography class that really helped me dive into this passion. My project was a series of mixology photos. I titled it “Drink of the Week” and every week I traveled to different Nashville restaurants to photograph their specialty cocktail. I knew when I started this series I wanted to use this project to network and build my reputation, as well as find some great drinks to feature. I began reaching out to as many local restaurants as I could and asked if they would be willing to let me come in and photograph one of their signature drinks. With this simple ask, I was welcomed with open arms into some of Nashville’s favorite local restaurants. I was able to work with places such as Henrietta Red, Rolf & Daughters, Amerigo, Etch, Etc. and Bartaco. In addition to building some great connections, this photo series helped to build my social media presence. During the project, I featured a new Drink of the Week every week on Instagram and was shocked at how well people responded to this.

Going for BROKE; Introducing a New Comic Series

WRITTEN BY: lfunke

Drake Denada “Epic” joins Mathias Bartholomew Santiago “Omega” as the perfect anti-heroes, two broke ‘average Joes’ challenging themselves to become paid, professional heroes. If you have ever struggled to pay a bill in college, then you know the struggle of Broke Comic. Nossi College joins Antonio Flores II and Kenneth Brian Moore, the creators of Broke Comic. Thanks to the Memphis Comic Expo, Antonio and Kenneth were able to secure a publishing deal and Broke will be available for sale in late March 2018. Click here to stay up to date!  How did you come up with the idea? Antonio Flores II: Playing a massively multiplayer online game with fellow Nossi grad, Kenneth Moore, I had comical misfortunes happening again and again and my character level was so low I shouldn’t have been able to continue. It was in that moment we laughed at other misfortunes we encountered in life. Kenneth Moore: That idea concocted two broke superheroes trying to pay rent. I drew a single page of the comic at the time and laughed for a solid hour while doing it. AFII: This concept didn’t happen overnight. There were several prospective ‘super’ suits, but it wasn’t until we both enrolled at Nossi College when we started to brainstorm more ideas and made progress in the overall world design, additional characters and events leading the storyline. KM: I wrote a treatment for Comic Class when I was in school that was refined after I graduated after getting feedback from friends…
