What you'll learn in this photography class:

Join Alexandra Shytsman – recipe developer, food writer and photographer – for an immersion in all things food styling and photography. In this 4-hour workshop, Alex will provide beginner food bloggers and influencers with a starter kit for capturing food for digital media. We will cover the essential concepts of using a DSLR camera, lighting, equipment, composition, food and prop styling, and how to develop your own visual style.

Whether you’re currently shooting on a smartphone or professional camera, for your blog, cookbook or Instagram account, this class will give you the tools and inspiration to create drool-worthy images. The class is ideal for bloggers, private chefs, health coaches, aspiring food photographers, and future Instagram stars.

Prior to the workshop, you will receive a questionnaire regarding your present food photography experience and goals for this class. You will also be able to submit your own food images to be discussed in class; participation is optional but encouraged as the class is a supportive, no-judgement environment where you can get valuable custom feedback on your skills.

We will have a 15-minute break halfway through the workshop. Coffee/tea and a light snack will be served. You are welcome to pack a lunch to bring with you and enjoy during the break.

This class was a great overview of food photography best practices. I went in with very little experience and left excited to get started taking my own photos.

This class was very thorough and informative. Alex took time to cater the class to our personal inquiries.

Reviewed by Cathy G. on 10/16/2017
The instructor was engaging, very knowledgeable, and got through a ton of material very quickly and without losing us along the way. Her handouts and visuals were useful. I particularly liked how tailored the course was to the realities of living in New York. You will be doing this kind of photography at home and your home probably has one good window that is nowhere near your kitchen. She was very helpful in ways to get around that. Highly recommend!
