One thing I am not is a food photographer. I seriously rely on those handy Instagram filters to make whatever I'm eating look good. So when I saw Saturday at Alt offered a photo styling class, sign me up...
Felicia, Brit and I were a team and after listening to about an hour lecture on tips and looking at photos, it was our turn. Here's some behind the scenes of our little photo styling shoot.
A few key notes I wrote down:
~light should enter from the side
~use a fill card (white posterboard works great) on the opposite side of your light source to bounce light back onto your subject
~upload your photos onto your computer or ipad to analyze before breaking down your table/setting/placements or else you may have to recreate the scene all over again
~always use natural light
~create different heights and areas of interest for your eye to move between
How cute is the above photo where they spelled out 'Love' with twine? Definitely taking a mental note of that one. And below is our final shot.
