During the summer, Ophelie and I had talked about food photography and styling workshops on our respective blogs (here & here). The adventure continues this fall as last weekend was a success: bare with us for the reflections on this dream day, we will post images soon…we can’t wait to share them with you! Many of you had already requested some information, so we are thrilled to announce the next dates and details. We are already working on 2017 and are aiming to publish the planning during the course of October.
Date: 12th November 2016 (Saturday)
Venue: a cute flat in Montmartre
Time: 9:30 to 16:30
Cost: 300 € – includes all welcome gifts, materials, coffee/tea, lunch and refreshments and lots of pretty food to photograph (transport not included).
What are we going to do?
We will learn to work in small spaces, with or without a tripod, optimizing what we have around us. We will shoot with natural light and explore dark dramatic and moody food photography as well as fresh crisp and light styling. You will have access to props, surfaces and delicious food that will provide you many photo opportunities.
This workshop is 100% hands on! We will learn all the nuances to showcase the food while having fun and experiencing different styles of photography and food styling. There won’t be any boring theory or complicated technical terms during the day, the aim is to simplify the set to allow you to quickly get nice results. Instead, we will learn by interacting and engaging all our senses and especially by getting your hands dirty. We will learn to control our cameras and take advantage of the manual mode. We will also photograph with our smartphones and see how they can be complementary.
All this will be based on practical exercices with very fun briefs and a visual introduction to explore our cameras, lenses, lighting, framing, composition, texture, perspective and mood.
We will share really fun secrets and insider tips so that your pictures and style can stand out.
What are we going to eat?
A lovely morning tea will get you started as you eat, shoot and acquaint yourselves over cups of tea (or coffee) and home made cakes. We will spend some time around our table to enjoy a delicious lunch and discuss all things related to blogging, food photography, styling or anything else. Warm tea and coffee will keep us warm through the day. Last but not least there will be a nice surprise to photograph in the afternoon!
Who is it for?
This workshop is open to everyone from the camera novice to the expert. Please bring your DSLRs, favourite lens and smartphones and tripod if you have one.
Places are limited as we want this workshop to be intimate to allow us to best meet your expectations, share with you all our know-how and have enough time for 1-to-1 session.
To secure your seat, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a link for payment (via paypal) in return. Please let us know if you have any food allergies or dietary requirements.
We look forward to welcoming you and spending a fun day together!
