People eat with their eyes first, we all know this. And in an increasingly visual-heavy, digital world where our prospective customers are finding us and researching us on platforms like Instagram, TikTok and the like, you need to be a visual competitor in your market; your food can't just speak for itself anymore. Learn tips and techniques for styling your food and beverages for photography - and no "fake" elements that look like food either. I'll teach you how to style your own actual food and how to think about lighting, color contrast, texture and more. These tips and tricks are useful whether you're the amateur "smartphone photographer" or if you're working with a professional photographer on a shoot.
