What you'll learn in this food photography class:

Learn how to style mouth-watering food for photography in this 2-hour workshop!

Whether you’re a blogger, chef, aspiring professional photographer, or are simply seeking to improve your existing skills, this class will give you many tips and tricks to make your food look amazing on camera.

You'll learn:
  • How to choose props and backgrounds that compliment your food
  • Compositional and lighting techniques, with an emphasis on working in small spaces
  • How to create a food styling toolbox with simple objects around the house
  • How to do prep shots vs finished plate shots and complex vs. minimalist scenes
  • Ways to add a human touch to your photos
  • Tips for working with tricky foods 
  • How to find your voice and develop your own style and more

This class will include both demos and hands-on exercises that teach how to use light, shapes, colors, and textures to create powerful and engaging food stories.

We'll touch on a few aspects of photography, but the emphasis of the class will be on the styling of the food. A camera is not necessary but feel free to bring one to class if you'd like to record the scenes we create. (If you are not already familiar with the mechanisms of your particular camera please bring the manual as well).

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
