This class might be over, but get first dibs on new sessions and brand-new classes by signing up on our ultra-rad mailing list.

In this 2-hour workshop, we will work to improve your food shots in tricky lighting situations. Whether you’re a blogger, chef, or anyone else seeking to improve your food photography skills, this class will give the confidence to tackle low-light conditions with ease.

We will:

  • Work with different affordable lighting solutions that you can easily set up 
  • Use different tools to bounce, reflect, and diffuse light
  • Learn how to compose your food scene, with an emphasis on working in small spaces
  • Share resources for finding budget tools you'll need for low-light photography
For the hands-on portion, DSLR or mirrorless cameras are recommended, although phones are also okay.
Join us for this fun evening of experimenting and hands-on learning!
