Food photography has taken a giant leap over the past decade. The look and feel of food on the printed page is being interpreted in a more spontaneous and organic way. The focus of this class is the creation of compelling food photography by learning to observe and approach the subject's natural characteristics. The class addresses lighting, composition, propping, and style as these relate to shooting "plated food," food in process, and ingredients. Students have the benefit of working with an experienced food stylist; one day of class time is spent at a farmers market in the city.
prerequisite: Photo II or portfolio review
note: Friday and Tuesday students meet at ICP; Saturday and Sunday class is held at the Shooting Kitchen, 307 West 38th St. Suite 1805, New York, NY 10018.
