I am so excited to announce the final workshop for 2017, which I will be hosting with the ever so talented Sarah Fennel of Broma Bakery. This 4-day, 3-night retreat will be held in the picturesque Napa Valley of Northern California. We will be staying on a stunning estate, spending our days immersed in food styling, photography and growing together as creatives.
We will start by covering the foundations of photography to get you comfortable shooting in manual mode.
We will cover how to create a well-composed food image – discussing the principles we use to artfully style compelling food images.
STORYTELLING | We’ll put together beautifully styled food stories, demonstrate how we choose a shooting space and example how we select props to fit the scene
MOVEMENT + THE HUMAN ELEMENT
From that drippy caramel to a perfect powdered sugar dusting, we will analyze movement and motion in our food photos. We will explore various ways to incorporate human presence in food photography and we will have opportunities for you to capture those action shots that add so much life and movement to a photo.
STYLING + PROPS
Props are just as important as the food that we photograph. The beauty of a handmade plate, the texture of a wrinkled linen cloth – incorporating the right props into your storytelling will set your images apart. We will cover how we approach prop selection for a shoot and share tips on how we have built our prop collections without breaking the bank.
Learning to photograph is only half of the skill set needed to master food photography, post processing is where you create your style and leave your personal stamp on your work. We’ll do an in-depth tutorial of Lightroom, learning the editing techniques that will make your photography stand out.
MARKETING + CLIENT WORK
Turning your passion into a business is no small feat. In just two years, both Sarah & Bella built their blogs into profitable careers. We’ll discuss branding techniques, how to reach out to clients and how to develop social media strategies that pay off.
