This class is designed to help take your understanding of food styling and photography to the next level. In this class, you will be introduced to trends in food styling and key considerations in food. Junita will style food for Steve to photograph, that you can then analyze from different lighting perspectives and effects. Participants will have a chance to style food and have Steve take a digital photo. Photos will then be analyzed with Junita and feedback and critique will be given.
