Food Styling and Photography for Bloggers
Join cookbook author, food blogger and photographer Alexandra Shytsman for a hands-on food-styling and photography workshop designed specifically for bloggers and Instagram enthusiasts. The class will be divided into three sections. First, we’ll cover technical concepts with a digital presentation, then move on to the kitchen for a hands-on photoshoot; finally, we’ll critique each other’s finished images. Throughout the workshop, Alex will provide you with a toolkit for capturing food for digital media, including: DSLR camera essentials; natural and artificial lighting; food-styling trends; equipment tips; composition basics; and smartphone photography advice. We’ll also discuss how to use props for visual storytelling, how to style food "on set" (aka your kitchen), and how to develop your own visual style. Whether you’re shooting on a phone or a professional camera, for your Instagram account or for your cookbook, this class will give you the tools and inspiration to create drool-worthy images. The workshop is ideal for bloggers, private chefs, aspiring food photographers and future Instagram stars.
