Our first in-person, half-day CreatingYOU. workshop took place on May 9th in Ivanhoe, California and it was a huge success.
Here’s the recap:
CreatingYOU. was a half-day workshop by food photographer and writer, Lori Rice, focused on creativity in food styling to help entrepreneurs, artists, and creatives produce food and product images that tell their stories and reflect their brands. The day began with an overview of general topics to improve photos such as controlling natural lighting, surfaces, and props. Attendees were then given the task of selecting food, a surface, and props and challenging Lori to style it all for a photo. Through this lesson it was emphasized that a DSLR is not required to create beautiful images for web promotion, this is reflected in comparing a DSLR shot lightly edited in Lightroom and an iPhone 8 image lightly edited in the app, Snapseed.
For the rest of the workshop, attendees were given time to style and photograph multiple images while asking questions and enlisting assistance from Lori which enabled them to put their creativity to use and troubleshoot with one-on-one support. Attendees included shop owners, food bloggers, food producers, and ceramic artists from the Visalia area, to Springville, to LA.
