Food Photography Course: How Is Food Photography Different?
In essence, food photography is a still life image. It is a form of commercial photography that is used in marketing to make different types of food look delicious and appetizing, focusing on what makes the specific dish unique and exciting.
As a food photographer, you want to induce a physical response from the viewer – you want to get them excited about buying and eating what you are showing them!
As part of your Professional Photography Certification, you will begin by learning about the digital technologies that you will need to make the most of all types of photography, from action shots to travel landscapes, portraits to food. You will receive a professional camera and lens kit so you can get started straight away, and all you need to successfully complete the course is a computer.
Through your studies, you will learn about how images are created and stored using digital technology and learn about the different equipment and software you can use. You will be introduced to all the important facets of digital imagery, from colour and resolution to size. Through a step-by-step guide, you will learn about how cameras work, how to use both one-shot and three-shot camera techniques, and all the terminology used in digital photography.
After this, the second module focuses on what can be achieved using Photoshop. This is the industry standard for raster images but also for design in general – so the learning in this module will have many applications far beyond just photograph manipulation.
You can learn about using the Tool Palette, how to effectively use Layers and Filters, and Masking and Resizing – all to end up with an image that sells the unique nature of the dish you are photographing.
