Hi! I'm Bill Robbins and welcome to Food and Drink Photography. In this course we'll discuss techniques for shooting and lighting small-scale subjects and staging food to look crisp, hot, cold, or fresh from the oven. I'll start by exploring two core types of food photographs and the compositional concepts you should have in mind before planning a shoot. I'll look at all the necessary gear, from choosing the right camera to creating a toolkit specialized for photographing food.
We'll look at how to frame a subject with the right props, utensils, and background objects. I'll show you how to style beautiful and appetizing subjects like ice-cold drinks, steaming hot coffee, delicious ice cream, and sizzling hot steak. Finally, we'll go out to a restaurant to explore the specifics of shooting on location. In this course I've made the effort to cover all these topics from two different perspectives, including techniques for amateurs and food bloggers as well as the professional photographers.
So, I hope I've managed to whet your appetite. Now let's get started with Food and Drink Photography.
