Who is this Workshop for and what is it about?

This Workshop is for amateurs who likes the idea of photographing food, whether a food blogger or a budding food photographer, and wants to do it well.

This Workshop deals with the basics of photographing food in natural light. We will discuss the basics of food photography including shooting modes and lenses used in food photography, composition, exposure, angles, quality of natural light, how best to photograph various kinds of food, understanding what goes into making a good food photograph, the basics of styling, etc.

The Workshop includes a session where participants will try their hands at styling and shooting food. Tea/ Coffee and lunch are included.

Are there any pre-requisites to attend this Workshop?

I would expect that you have a DSLR and that you have a reasonably good working knowledge of your camera. You are also welcome to register for the Workshop if you use a Point Shoot camera but you may find that you are limited by your camera when it comes to certain aspects of shooting food during the practical session.

What do I need to bring with me?

Just bring yourself and your camera. Do also bring your 50mm f/1.8 lens if you have one, or whatever other lens you normally use to shoot your food photographs. That’s it.

I would love to join you for the Workshop. What do I need to do?

That’s great! To register for the Workshop, please e-mail me at aparna[DOT]bala[DOT]photography[AT]gmail[DOT]comwith “Workshop” and either Bangalore or Chennai in the title field indicating which city you would like to attend the Workshop. I will then send you further details regarding the workshop.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Please note that I am limiting each Workshop to 8 participants, so booking a place at the Workshop will be on a first-come basis. If there a large enough number of participants, I will be open to conducting one more Workshop in Bangalore on the following day, the 18thof January, 2014.
