Food Photography
With Jack Blake

Things you will learn

  • Basic composition and framing techniques to best showcase your art
  • Camera functions
    • Shutter speed and aperture
    • Exposure compensation and metering
    • Bracketing exposures properly
  • Composition through depth of field
  • Effects and "emotion" through uses of light
  • Food photography

Things you will need

  • A camera that allows manual control of shutter speeds and apertures (Preferably DSLR)
  • A notepad and pen
  • Tripod (If you don't have one, we might have an extra.)
  • A mind that is ready for a lot of info

I've been teaching photography to professionals and hobbyists for 25 years. ONE of the basics I teach is that photos are "composed" in three ways; 1) Two dimensional, 2) three dimensional, and 3) through "painting with light". There are basic "rules" that help us to get the most out of our gear and to get the most out of the art that we're capturing. I will be teaching the basics of these "rules" and also teaching the basic uses of each individual's camera. I'll also be teaching how to best deploy light over our food to achieve the desired "mood" and to show off what we create with our culinary masterpieces. One of the wonderful things you'll see is that you ALREADY have everything you need in order to create professional looking images of your culinary art. I will be teaching how best to use those things that are already available to us without spending money on expensive equipment. ALL you will need is your good camera, an open mind, and a window!!

My wife and photography partner and I look forward to helping you capture your very best creations to show off to the world!!
