ABOUT THIS EVENT

Arts & DIY

Event Overview

Go from plating and styling to lighting and shooting. In this class, Dabblers will learn to take food made at home or the most elegant restaurant fare and make it look like a cover from Gourmet magazine, all using simple tools, easy methods, and whatever camera the photographer happens to have with them, be it a Nikon DSLR or a Canon Point and Shoot or an iPhone.

We'll be discussing basic photography methods, and some of the tips and tricks of the trade for food photographers. The material is approachable and easy-to-grasp, but there's something here for even seasoned photographers, as well as Instagrammers and Facebook fiends.

    The food photography class was great fun and full of wonderful tips. Joe is a most talented photographer and is generous in sharing his expertise. Even better than a regular photography class, when we were done with each course, we got to eat our subjects (salad, pasta course, dessert)!

    This class with Joe was amazing! He did such a wonderful job making sure we all had a chance to try out the techniques and we felt comfortable with the new concepts. I would LOVE to take a more advanced version of this class with Joe, he was great! Also, the food was awesome and Grafito couldn't have been more accommodating.
