The Learning Center Classes

Food Photography

This is a deliciously hands-on class with theoretical and technical foundations. Class starts with discussions and demos on composition and lighting techniques at HCP. Students will receive a refresher on flash technique, which will be applied to food photography. The subsequent meeting will take place at a restaurant and/or bakery (to be announced/discussed during session one) where students will apply tips and techniques covered in the first meeting. The class will then convene back at HCP’s digital darkroom for a session of postproduction of the images captured, followed by a group critique.
