Introduction to Food Photography
Mondays, June 7, June 14, June 21, June 28
We will discuss techniques, concepts, lighting and equipment involved in creating successful food images. Ideas will be given on how to create wonderful images with whatever equipment you have to work with. Tell a story with composition, backdrops/shooting surfaces and using props to complete your images and story. There will be demos to help students see the topics discussed in the real world.
