Class Experience

Students will hone their manual photography skills while learning how to compose and light creative food photos. They'll learn basic photo editing techniques and will also learn how to edit their images using layers and layer masks to create the illusion of floating food.
I've been a professional photographer since 2001 and have a wide range of photography experience, including many years photographing babies and children. I've taught photography for fifteen years to professional photographers, enthusiasts and teens through group workshops, private lessons and online classes.

I'm recognized as a Master Photographer by the Professional Photographers of America and was also awarded the organization's Photographic Craftsman degree in recognition of my work teaching other professional photographers.
Each week will include a photography challenge in which the student will apply what they've learned by creating one or more photographs. Students will also review and analyze food photos taken by a variety of professional photographers.

Please contact me if you are unsure as to whether or not your specific camera is compatible with the class. ☞ 𝗧𝗿𝗶𝗽𝗼𝗱. I 𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙮 recommend having a full-sized tripod available. Acceptable tripods are available on Amazon starting as low as $14.99. Be sure to get one that is sturdy enough for your camera!

While most of my classes are photography-related, I also offer occasional classes on other topics that I think will benefit the community of students here on Outschool.
