Do you love taking photos of what you eat? Do you wish you knew how to make better use of your camera when taking those photos? In this one-day workshop, we will learn how to style and photograph food and how to use natural light to take dynamic pictures. Using digital SLR cameras (shooting in raw) we will shoot outdoors with a variety of different props. We will go over camera basics, including which lens, f-stop, and shutter speed to choose for best results. After looking at professional food photographers’ work for inspiration, we will discover how to combine surface backgrounds and props such as plates, silverware, napkins, glasses, candles, and flowers for a successful and well-composed shot. Whether you’re a food blogger or someone who just loves taking pictures of your meals, this workshop will help make those photos look even more appetizing and professional.
While we will start with camera basics for beginners, students of all levels are welcome to join. Students should have a DSLR camera and a smartphone available for use.
