The Power of Natural Light in Food Photography

The Power of Natural Light in Food Photography

If you’ve ever created a gorgeous dish, propped it all out, taken the photo --- and then sighed with disappointment, chances are your lighting was to blame. In this class, we will start by learning to see and recognize different kinds of light and what they do to an image. Using simple, inexpensive hacks, you will learn when and how to create, diffuse and bounce light. We’ll explore how camera position affects the mood of a shot, and touch on smart ways to ensure your food looks its very best. Whether you shoot with an iPhone or a digital camera, instructor Marge Perry --- who just shot her entire cookbook using only natural light! --- will show you how to improve every photo you take by harnessing the beauty of available light.
