One Day Intensive Workshop
Saturday April 6th 2019
This workshop will demonstrate how to style food to tell the best and most appropriate visual story for your food or subject. Through elements such as props, natural light, angles, botanicals and editing, the simplest food or subject can be transformed into an opulent visual story. Learn how to achieve a bright and vibrant scene or a dark and moody painterly capture.
There will be a hands on style sessions where you can create a still life scene with cake, food and props. As well as an opportunity to work with a model to learn the art of Rembrandt’s chiaroscuro/lighting and triangle technique in portraits. All this will be followed up with a tutorial on editing your work in Adobe Lightroom.
Spaces are very LIMITED so book soon.
