What’s the recipe for a fun evening of learning about delicious lighting for food photography?
First, start with a vibey location-Fido in Hillsboro Village in Nashville. Add a couple of foodies, a dash of food bloggers, plus a handful of cooks and bakers. Mix with a few aspiring food photographers and a heaping of wonderful food by Chef John Stephenson. Blend these all together with a couple hours of food photography tips and tricks and … well, you end up with a fun evening complete with four-course meal.
Here’s a taste of what the evening looked like.
:: Chef John and Kyle getting things started.
:: Participants telling us about Fill, Rim and Key.
:: Oh, look! Food paparazzi.
:: Chef John delivering the goods.
:: More food paparazzi.
:: Participants explaining, with flare, the photo crew’s responsibilities.
:: This is an Art Director. A What? An Art Director. Oh, an Art Director.
:: Kyle saying something very important, or likely just being silly.
And, here are a few food photographs taken during class with our sample lighting setup.
So what was the highlight?
Personally, I enjoyed meeting everyone and sharing a little about how I work. Hopefully everyone left with some piece of information that will prove helpful in their food photography efforts.
But, you know me, after the workshop I had the pleasure of sitting down and enjoying a fabulous slice of chocolate cake. Chocolate is always a highlight for me.
