On saturday the 7th of December, at my Studio in Rosebery, I’ll be teaching a hands on food photography workshop for food bloggers and beginners; the class is almost full , but you might still be able to get in … if you are in Sydney and want to attend. Here is the direct link to the workshop page ( click here).
I quite like the definition of food photography given by Wikipedia: ” Food photography is a still life specialisation of commercial photography, aimed at producing attractive photographs of food for use in advertisements, packaging, menus or cookbooks. Professional food photography is a collaborative effort, usually involving an art director, a photographer, a food stylist, a prop stylist and their assistants”.
What we do in class covers the subject of food photography from different perspectives, and aims at providing the students with a set of practical skills, as well as with a general understanding of how a typical food photography assignment might be approached and dealt with depending on the circumstances.
A hands on workshop is in my opinion the best way to learn food photography; however, I have compiled a short list of essential tips to share here with you all; this type of advice comes from experience, and if you make it yours it will point you in the proper direction right from the beginning.
Here it goes:
Hope this helps!
