what will happen

Food Photography, from food styling to learning how to light your delish delights.  Whether they are the Instagrammers favoured “Flat-Lays” or styled in light tents or product tables – the photographic techniques you will learn tonight will take your skills to another level, as well as being transferable in other photographic genres.

Tonight’s Welshot Photographic Academy Evening for Business & Bloggers will be held at the Holiday Inn – Ellesmere Port and You will learn how to position and use lighting – ambient as well as studio and if we have the right conditions we might even be able to use some natural light too at the beginning of the evening.

You will also learn how to use your camera.  How to use the correct settings and functions to capture and make the image you want – which will guarantee that you take home some superb images for your portfolio.

We will have several “Styled” sets for you, lots of food, kitchenware props and a selection of backgrounds.  We will have a “Flat-Lay” set that you can use, not just for the food photography but also any images that you are needing to create of your own using this technique.  You are welcome to bring along any food props of your own as well.
