Why Train in Food Photography?

Food and beverage photography only concerned magazines and advertorial campaigns in the past, but it has found a much wider area of application with the rising demand for visuals coupled with lower costs. Today, we want to see a picture of each product we buy or of each dish we order.

Of course, one should not forget about web publishing. The number of people who are capable of taking food and beverage photographs is hardly adequate to meet the endless photography demand of numerous food blogs, let alone corporate portals and websites. The chief reason for this is that food does not really care for the basic principles of photography, but is pickier about lighting conditions. For that reason, if we wish to come up with appetising photographs, it is imperative that we learn the techniques and basics of this field. Our workshops will provide you with the answer to the question, 'how does one take food photographs'.
