Food Photography

On this workshop we will explore the creative world of food photography. Robin photographs professionally for food manufacturers, local restaurants, pubs and catering companies. Robin won the ‘Food in the Street’ category 2017  Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition has been shortlisted the last four  years and was a finalist in 2015.

We will explore composition, light (natural, studio, metering) depth of field (aperture), shutter speed and propping to achieve the look you want. We will discuss (briefly) food still life as a genre and its commercial role today. There will be a selection of ingredients and dishes to photograph working progressively through the session. We will explore processing in Adobe Lightroom and how to export images to print.

You will need your own DSLR camera, tripod and lens. Ideally something around a 100mm macro lens or a 50mm with a wide aperture (f1.8). A basic working knowledge of your camera is required, but you don’t need to be an expert. We will use the manual setting for full control – this is actually a lot easier than people imagine!

Have fun!

Perhaps most importantly, as well as learning new skills, you will have had some fun learning in a relaxed and supportive environment. During the course the emphasis is on personal creativity to achieve the look you want.
