Food, Fotos & Fun: PopUp Dining & Photography Experience

June 22 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Capturing images of the food we eat and the dining experiences we have is all the rage these days. Wouldn’t you love to learn how to capture the perfect image with either your mobile phone or that professional camera you have?

This is a pop-up dining experience with photography and fellowship in mind. You get to experience a professional chef cooking for you and our photography sessions while enjoying the company of some new like-minded friends.

A Brief Overview of the Evenings Activities

This event is partly lecture but mostly hands-on photography and eating. Food is prepared for our shoots and is available to eat during and after the class. We will cover the following:

– Food Photography (What is it, really?)
– 11 Rules of Composition for Photography (Rule of 3rds, etc)
– Telling Food Stories (What are you trying to say with your photos?)
– What’s Needed to Shoot Food? (Equipment, Lighting, Props, etc.)
– Let’s Shoot Some Food! (Hands-On Exercise)
– Who’s your audience? (Social media, Blogging, Websites, Commercial, etc)
– Online Resources (A collection of YouTube and Websites reference materials)
– Q&A (Ask me anything, but due to this being an interactive class, questions can be asked at any time)

Whether you are a seasoned professional or a novice, this experience is for you. Register today and let’s have fun shooting and enjoying some great food. Please register today and tell your friends about it. Seating is limited.
