Last Fall Albuquerque Magazine responded to one of my promotional mailings with a request that I put on a food lighting seminar for some of their photographers. The request caught me by surprise… though I am quite comfortable with lighting food, I had never given thought as to what my food photography lighting “technique” even is, let alone teach it to others.
I agreed and we had our lighting workshop a couple of weeks ago. One of my long term clients, Wystone’s Tea, was gracious enough to open their doors to myself and the magazine so we could shoot in a restaurant environment as is the typical shooting situation for the magazine.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and I hope that Albuquerque Magazine’s director of photography, Liz Lopez and staff photographer, Don James learned as much from me as I did from them.
