Join photographer Yuki Sugiura in a day-long workshop looking at the complex colour palette of food and its relationship to composition and light
Food is seductive, and the art of documenting it continues to activate all senses. Together with lifestyle photographer Yuki Sugiura, this practical workshop explores different ways of representing the food that inhabit our everyday. Using ingredients like fruits and vegetables, we will look at the transformative possibilities of their simple forms. We will experiment with various light techniques and play with composition and texture to see what kind of stories can be told using food as a point of inspiration. There will also be opportunity to work with a food stylist (details to follow) to gain more insight into how to arrange and showcase food.
Suitable for all levels. Please bring your own equipment (camera and lens) if available.
