Still Life and Food Photography
This class will demonstrate techniques and tools used by professionals to make still life and food photographs. Classes will be taught around tabletop sets. We will explore composition, use of props, and how to modify available daylight within each set. A guest food stylist will illustrate how to purchase food and keep it “alive” for the shoot. Participants will develop versatility within their photo skills and will receive feedback in executing their own ideas. Please bring a tripod, DSLR, and an open mind.
