There are many workshops being conducted and organized. With such a bloom in number of workshops it becomes critical to choose the right workshop. This post provides some insight on how to choose a food photography or styling workshop.
Choosing the Right Food Photography and Styling Workshop
Digital Photography School published a great article on choosing a workshop or photography class. Peter shares four things that you should do before enrolling in the class:
Write Out What You Want To Learn
Check The Syllabus
Review the Instructors Photos and Feedback
Read the complete article on Digital Photography School.
Checking syllabus and content of the workshop is important to manage your expectations from the workshop.
With so many food photography workshops being organized these days, it is important that you research the instructors and review their portfolio before signing up. Look for the photos and also see how long an instructor has been teaching or taking photographs. If bio is unavailable online, ask the organizers to provide one.
In past few weeks, I have come across some outstanding workshops. In my opinion, these workshops are taught by some top notch professionals in the industry.
Ongoing Food Photography and Styling Workshops
