I've been planning this for a while and have wanted to share it with you for so long, but had to hold my tongue until everything came together. And with all the craziness of the home purchase I had to delay the announcement a bit, too. But now that everything is settling down I could not be more excited to share that this summer I am hosting a month-long introductory online food styling & photography workshop. The course focuses on food photography, food styling, and image post-processing. The workshop begins on July 12th and ends on August 13th and includes bi-weekly assignments due each Wednesday and Saturday. Each assignment features text, photo, and/or video course materials furthering the lesson plan. General course material will cover: DSLR camera maintenance, manipulation of natural lighting, creating depth of field, adjusting shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, lenses and their focal lengths, food styling, post processing in Adobe Lightroom 5, and post processing in Adobe Photoshop CC. Registration closes May 31st, and I would love nothing more than for you to join me this summer.
I'm really excited about the course because location won't be a factor in whether or not many of you can participate, since I know most of you aren't on the west coast, and I wanted to put something together that more of you could partake in. It's going to be an incredibly fun and creative experience and, while there will be much to learn, the course load will be very manageable. I scheduled it so that there will be one weekend day in addition to several weekdays to work on each assignment to make it more doable for those of you who work full-time during the week. If you have any questions about the workshop, please don't hesitate to reach out to me, I can't wait to "see" you there!
