This is a class for beginners to learn how to use Tungsten light in food photography.

Learn to create shots like this at home! You will be shocked at how easy it is to shoot with tungsten light. Seriously, you will be kicking yourself because you did not learn this sooner. This is the perfect Part Two class for those who have taken the Natural Light Food Photography class and the Food Styling and Photo Techniques class. This class is tailored not for the professional photographer, but for those who want to create delicious and attractive images for their web sites, blogs and small printed pieces. Students will learn a variety of fun and simple techniques for preparing, presenting and photographing all types of food. Class includes an actual photo shoot in the studio using Tungsten light. There will be two sets, a backlit set and a side lit set. Christina will go over optimizing images for the web and print. Christina will have inexpensive lighting kits available for each student to use. If you like the kit you will have the opportunity to purchase it. Please email
Christina for details.
