Digital Food Photography Workshop with Lou Manna: June 22, 2008

On Sunday, June 22, 2008, Lou Manna, food photographer and author of the book Digital Food Photography, is offering a full-day class entitled: Digital Food Photography: Creating Delectable Images.

A few months ago, I had an opportunity to take a very similar full-day workshop at the same location (Lou Manna’s studio), and it was fantastic. Lou shares so many secrets of how to get great images of food, in a no-nonsense, easy to understand way. The huge Sony Flatscreen TV he uses to show and describe the lighting behind so much of his work, really makes it an interactive experience.

If you are interested in learning how to take photographs of food, I would highly recommend this class. The lighting instruction will also be of use for anyone who wants to learn more about still life photography. I know that Lou Manna generally offers this course a few times each year, so if you’d like to keep updated, I recommend signing up for e-mail updates on the left side of Adorama’s site.

The registration deadline for this Workshop is June 15, 2008. For more information or to register, visit this page.
