Food Photography

 

Whether you are an amateur, a blogger or a small business owner wanting to learn how to take better and consistent pictures of food, this class is for you. Food Photography allows you to perfectly capture the essence of food.

 

Learn the correct workflow that will allow you to take gorgeous pictures of food, on location or at home.

 

Work with natural light, speed lights and other simple tools, allowing you to recreate “window” light. You’ll learn simple techniques for food styling that will keep your food fresh and believable on set as well as the strategies for creating a thriving food photography business with a successful blend of online marketing and community building.

 

The main focus of this workshop is choosing the right light and angles, basics of composition and how to enhance the photograph using post-production techniques. Students are also encouraged to use their own gear as well as optimise their macro lenses.

 

The first half of this workshop will cover the theory and intricacies of food photography including food and prop styling and the second part you will be photographing various food items at The Brisbane Hotel, which will allow you to gain practical experience and feedback from the lecturer.

 

Our Food Photography workshop is held on a Wednesday.
