Want to Learn Food Photography?

Food Photography LogoI am so excited to announce that Curt of Bucky’s Barbecue and Bread and Nika of Nika’s Culinaria have collaborated to create an online food photography course called Food Photo 101.

The course objective is to guide interested budding food photographers through the technical and creative barriers they may be experiencing with their Point and Shoot or DSLR cameras. In other words, this course will help you learn how to take better food photos with whatever camera you are currently using!

The course is an interactive one and will include an online forum as well as a Flickr group where participants can show what they’ve done and get feedback. One lesson will be covered per week with Nika first introducing the lesson and then Curt walking through the ‘how to’ part of the lesson.

This class will be great for anyone interested in learning more about food photography, regardless of skill level. For more detailed information and to sign up for the class newsletter, visit Bucky’s Barbecue and Bread and Nika’s Culinaria.

Update: I also just noticed that Kalyn has written a post at BlogHer with a whole list of Helpful Food Photography Tips from Fellow Bloggers. It’s definitely something to be bookmarked!

    Thanks to all, there are some dishes that YOU know are delish but hard to translate/reflect in a photo.

    This is PERFECT for me! I’m a newbie to Food Blogging and could definitely use some pointers on my photos…
    (Thanks for your comment on my Kolache by the way!)

    Hey, thanks for mentioning my Blogher post. I wish I had time to do Nika’s course, but I can’t fit one more thing into my schedule. But I will be watching to see what others are doing.

    Peter: Exactly! Food photography is certainly not easy! Written food descriptions are great and talented writers can make any dish sound appealing but there’s just something about a great photo…

    Miss Scarlet: I think this will be perfect for new food bloggers! I really wish that it had been offered back when I was starting out!

    Anali: Cool! I’m going to try to participate in the class as much as possible although I think the move is going to get in the way a bit!

    Katie: Isn’t the internet a wonderful thing?? 🙂

    Xsquared: I’m so glad you’re signing up! Isn’t it frustrating when you know the food you’ve prepared is absolutely wonderful but then you try to capture it in a photo and it looks like the most unappetizing thing on the planet?! I know, because I used to struggle with that problem. It only takes a few basics to learn how to improve your food photos drastically and I think Nika is the perfect photographer to be doing this. She has always been so helpful when I’ve had questions in the past.

    Ruby: Yes, it is. You should do it and then start your food blog (whatever happened to the blog you were going to start??) Hahaha…like you really have time for it!

    Kalyn: No, thank YOU for writing compiling that great list of resources! Something like that would have been soooooo helpful back when I first started my blog. I knew absolutely nothing about photography…and even less about food photography! The best way to learn is by asking questions from other food bloggers and that list holds many of those answers!
