March 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
Have you ever seen a mouth-watering photograph on a food blog or in a magazine and thought “I wish I could eat that?” – now you can! Join us for a fun twist to ‘happy hour’, as we explore the art of food styling and photography using artistic and delicious appetizers and cocktails as your subject matter.
In addition to having a good time, there is a great deal to learn about photography through the practice of lighting, styling, composing, and shooting food and still life setups, as well as the bonus of getting to eat and drink the props at the end of class!
Bring your cell phone or DSLR and experiment with shooting several different types of setups with food plates and glassware. The styling and food photography is only part of our story. You will also be learning how to do studio lighting from a pro. It is not difficult but there is a thought process that will be important to learn that includes a step by step plan to build a terrific still life or cookbook-ready photograph. Take the skills you will learn at this workshop and capture images of your own culinary creations, perfect for sharing on social media or creating a self published book of family recipes!
Also included with be a discussion and hands on opportunity to work with ‘painting with light’, a fun technique that is used to create one-of-a-kind images using only a simple flashlight to light your subject.
This lecture, demo and hands-on workshop will help you gain confidence as you learn the secrets of composition, lighting and shooting that can be applied to any type of photography in any situation. This workshop is for any level photographer who already knows how to operate their camera and is willing to explore new avenues of expression and approaches to their photography.
