Capturing depth and texture in product and food photography is essential in making it stand out. Food Photographer Steve Hansen covers a step by step process for building a lighting setup with strobes and natural light from a broad to a more focused look. With a live demo using a small kitchen appliance with fruits and vegetables you'll learn how to make your still life's come to life.
An award-winning photographer specializing in food and beverages, Steve Hansen brings an artist’s eye and a chef’s perspective to every image he creates for his clients. Steve draws upon his prior experience as a food stylist, professional chef, and digital artist to every shoot where he creates vibrant and impactful images that consistently resonate with the senses
I really enjoyed learning about the details and complexities that go into the orchestration of food and product photography. The shoot that Steve Hansen puts on in demonstration of this was really elaborate and complicated. I never realized how much of the creative aspects of the images I see in magazines are created in camera, rather than in post-processing. I am a portrait photographer, so I was surprised at how much I learned that can transfer to creative portrait shoots as well. After watching this course, I have noticed details in lighting technique and product photography that I never saw before, and that has helped me elevate my work very amateur still life skills to a professional level. I now do product photography on the side for a refreshing change of subject matter, and have been able to photograph my own print products for a pre-sale catalog for my IPS sessions. This course is super useful across niches. I definitely recommend it to all photographers!
A lot of information to take in, really enjoyed the class. Loved how the layers were built on and the placement of all the items. Would love to see the final picture ofter touch ups :)
Enjoyed and learned altho I'm far from being able to afford this equipment, but love his work and I found him an engaging teacher.
