Food Photography Class

Back in May I taught my first food photography class to some local photographers and bloggers in Columbia, SC. When April first contact me to see if I would be interested in teaching, I was very nervous, but decided to give it a go. I’m glad I did because it was a good chance for me to get back to the basics of food photography and provide a good challenge for impromptu food styling!

I didn’t really know what we’d be photographing until I got to the class (which was held at Charleston Cooks!). It was so fun to work as a team and make the food look as delicious as it tasted!

First up, we have Maurice’s BBQ:

    1. Thanks Taylor! I was so nervous to teach the class, but once I got in there I was in a groove and had a blast! 🙂 And yes, I had a great time in Austin. Recap to come! 🙂

  1. I’m a sucker for pimento cheese, so I was drawn to that one first. But, I also love the backlit lemonade and the cookies.

    1. Oh, me too. Pimento cheese is just hard to beat! 🙂 The backlit drinks always look so delicious. No glare on the glass that way! Yay!

    1. I would LOVE to…both live closer to you and teach you everything I know!!! But shoot, you could teach ME a thing or two! I always love your photos. 🙂

      1. Haha whaaaaaaa??? You are the sweetest! I feel like I do “faux”-tography; it’s pure luck if my pictures are good! But thank you so much!! I’m so glad to hear I have a fan! 😀 I really wish we lived closer too! It would be way too much fun and I know our men would get along well too!! 😀

    1. Thanks Georgia! It was my first time every teaching, but it was a great learning experience for me! It was so nice meeting you! Austin is such a great city. Now, I need to bring my husband to visit and we can all hang out! 🙂

    1. Thank you Angela! It was certainly a great way for me to collect my knowledge in one place. You should definitely take a class if you ever get the chance. Such a great way to learn and be able to ask one-on-one questions. 🙂
