Throughout the three weeks Ola will be sharing her knowledge of the ideal props to use when photographing food, how to approach colour and how to plan out a photograph before taking it. On the final week of the course you’ll be trying your pieces out, photographing them with delicious food made by Ana. And the best part of any food photography shoot? You get to eat the food at the end! Week 1 Our first session will be broken up into two parts. The first hour will be a discussion over coffee lead by Ola O Smit as she discusses her background in food photography how she approaches every shoot and what goes into pre-production. We will also spend time looking at Ana’s example of props, her experience working in food photography and how she collaborates with creatives on set to create a cohesive story and selection of images. The last two hours will be spent creating your ideal props for the image you have in mind, make sure to bring your ideas of different images you have in mind and would like to create. Ana will then work with you to make pieces to help create the image you have in mind! Ola will also be there to advise and share ideas on how to improve your props from a photographers point of view.
