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 and has been shortlisted the last four years and was a finalist in 2015.
We will prepare a variety of dishes to photograph and the emphasis is on presentation, ingredients, composition, angles, light and depth of field to capture an image that draws in the viewer.
You will need your own DSLR camera, tripod and lens. Ideally something around a 100mm macro lens or at least a 50mm with a wide aperture (f1.8). A reasonable working knowledge of your camera is required, if you only use the auto setting with your kit lens this is not the workshop for you. From experience it takes me too much time to help people find their settings on a camera I may not be familiar with and a kit lens will not take good food shots. We will use manual or aperture priority throughout. We will process in Adobe Lightroom.
A light lunch is provided – typically soup, bread, cheese, fruit.
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.
