This brilliant workshop with extremely talented local photographer Neil White is for anyone who has a keen interest in food photography. It may interest food bloggers, B&B owners and restaurant owners who would like to be able to create stronger images for their websites/printed literature themselves. You will need to bring a digital SLR camera with a standard or zoom lens. A tripod is not essential but preferable.

We will begin to piece together a ‘food story’.  Food photography is not only about the finished dish, but also the process, ingredients and lifestyle which surround it. You will be shown ideas how to shoot the raw ingredients through to capturing the preparation of the food and finally shooting and styling the finished dish.

You will be shown how the use of props and textures can bring an image to life and how to manipulate natural and artificial light.

There will be plenty of hands-on camera work, showing you techniques which will elevate your images.
