Welcome to the DIY food photography course. In this video, Will introduces himself and what this course is all about. We're so excited to have you on board and can't wait to see your new photos!
Before you even think about snapping your photos, the first thing you need to do is choose the best location for your setup. In this lesson of the food photography course, Will gives you tips for choosing the best location in your house.
The next step in food photography is to prepare your food for being photographed. This includes setting up your food with a nice background, adding accents that relate to your main dish, and moving things around to look nicely.
When it comes to food photography, lighting is king. Lighting is very important for making your food look appetizing. But you don't need a fancy studio or expensive lights to get great lighting. We'll show you how to use what you have at home (or can buy for $1) to get great lighting.
Before you get caught up on what camera model to use for your food photography, we'll show you how to take amazing photos of your food with just a smartphone camera. In this lesson of the food photography course, we'll also cover the benefits of using a more professional camera like a DSLR or mirrorless camera.
Make your photos look even better by editing them. In this lesson of the food photography course, Phil walks you through editing your photos. Whether you're using Lightroom, Photoshop, your smartphone, or any other type of photo editing application, we'll cover crop, color, and exposure - the three main ways to improve your food photos.
It's time to take action. Join in with other students in this course, and practice the skills you've learned by taking a photograph of your next meal.
