This part-theory, part-practical introduction to food photography will give attendees a broad insight into the genre. Through live demonstrations and hands-on experimentation, you will learn how to take advantage of natural and artificial lighting, how to style and prop food items and how to best control your camera’s settings to ensure you get mouthwatering results. In this introductory workshop you won’t be using studio lights, instead you will work with affordable artificial lights and inexpensive DIY props to create images that look like they were skillfully shot in a professional studio. The latter part of the workshop is devoted to post-processing; the instructor will demonstrate how to skillfully edit your photographs.
