Two-Part In-Depth Food Photography Workshop with Farrell Scott

 Registration is closed for this event
Building on the interest from her recent Introduction to Food Photography workshop, Farrell will take students through a two-part course which focuses on the process of capturing professionally styled photographs of food settings. This workshop is designed to give interested photographers an idea what it is like to stage food with props and the process involved to capture great images.


Day One: The Planning Process 

  • Develop your concepts 
  • Set the mood
  • Develop a story board
  • Create food staging ideas 


Day Two: Shooting Food Staging Stations

In this part of the workshop attendees will bring their concepts to life with three different food staging stations. There will be props, fabrics, dishes, utensils, containers and of course food available for you to use and stage the perfect setting for your food photography images.

On the first day you will only need material to take notes.  On the second day, Sunday, please bring: 
  • camera
  • tripod
  • remote shutter release or you can do a time release
  • lens recommendation between 70mm and 110mm
  • laptop with your photo editing software loaded
  • card reader

You’ll have time to work on your images using Lightroom, PhotoShop or similar software.  The flash drive will be used to save images you wish to share with the classroom to be projected from the instructor’s computer.
