Food Photography Workshops


Photography: Andrew Maidanik


Food photography, and small product photography in general, is becoming a very important area of photography, as the sales industry is moving more and more towards on-line sales. In many segments, on-line sales have surpassed the physical sales for the past few years in a row.

Prior to visiting a restaurant or purchasing something on-line, customers need to have a very clear idea and understanding of how the food or products look.  It is absolutely crucial for on-line merchants to have great quality, clear and descriptive images of their products as it literally means sales or no sales.

This course is ideal for anyone involved in on-line sales or a photographer who wants to learn the correct, industry standard techniques for food and small product photography.

Food Photography falls into a category of product photography, and what is really great about it, that setups required to create beautiful and industry standard images are fairly simple and require little to no specialized equipment.

If enough natural light is available, all is required a small product table, white background and a reflector. IF natural light is not an option, the studio setup is still very simple, quite often involving only one light source and a reflector. Styling, is by far, is more difficult than the lighting setups.

In this 3 hour Food Photography Workshop we will learn how to make setups for food and generally any small product advertisement photography and practice food photography. We will learn to take industry standard food photography shots and see how little equipment is actually needed to produce great results.

We will practice both ambient light and studio light setups.

For this workshop you will need:

  • DLSR camera
  • Macro lens
  • or a non-DLSR camera with a macro photography mode

Duration: 3 hours. Fee – $40.  Group size – 12 students.

Next Food and Product Photography Workshop is on February 07, 2015 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
