In this immersive, final class in our "Introduction to Food Photography" series, we invite you to indulge in a culinary feast while capturing the beauty and vibrancy of the shared table. We'll blend the pleasures of dining with the art of photography, offering a sensory journey that celebrates the joy of food and the power of visual storytelling. You'll also have the optional opportunity to showcase your work!

This series was designed to present the art of capturing mouth-watering food imagery, from the basics of DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) cameras and iPhone photography, to styling and composition. It began with an exploration of the significance of food photography in advertising, cookbooks, and culinary blogging. After Chef Sandra Mehta prepared delectable dishes to photograph during each session, the series culminates with this final feast.


This series was designed to build your skills over several weeks. Each class built on the techniques learned from prior classes but could stand on its own. The classes were:

  • Introduction to Food Photography: Still Life
  • Introduction to Food Photography: Composition
  • Introduction to Food Photography: Lighting
  • Introduction to Food Photography: Styling
  • Introduction to Food Photography: Editing
  • Introduction to Food Photography: Feast and Capture
