I am teaming up with the amazing and highly talented photographer Russel Wasserfall to present a comprehensive two day hands on workshop on Food Photography and Styling, and we invite you to join us.
About the Photography
Russel Wasserfall takes you through the steps you need to follow to become a confident and accomplished food photographer. He begins with switching on the camera and takes you through the technical and creative stepping-stones to shooting magazine-quality food photos. You will go away equipped with the skills to create a little studio at home, assess and manipulate light, stop fighting with your camera and make it do what you want. Most of all you will have the tools and understanding to constantly assess and improve your photography.
About the Styling
Food photography and styling go hand in hand and I will cover the ways in which you can improve your food image through propping, food preparation and composition. I will take you through a few tips of the trade and show you a few handy tools. We will look at ways to arrange the same dish using different styles, and help you understand themes. I will address a few of styling challenges, offer solutions and generally be on hand to share my knowledge as a professional food stylist in a fun and interactive way.
Who should attend?
This course is for food and photography enthusiasts who want to understand what it takes to make usable and high quality food images for their blogs, as a profession, or simply as a hobby. It is strongly advisable that the attendees own a Digital SLR with interchangeable lenses or have the intention to buy one. On the course you will be able to seek advice on the best gear for the kind of photography you intend doing. Alternatively, we will show you how to get the best out of your existing equipment. We take you from switching the camera on to making beautiful food images in the course of two days.
