DYLAN + JENI: Food Photographers


Work with a partner or group of 3 for our first food photography assignment!

Today and Monday:

Plan with your partner or group! Figure out where you will shoot and what you will need in class. What sweet treat will you photograph together?  What props will you need?  Who’s bringing what? What kind of lighting do you want to achieve? Sketch out ideas?

Bring in sweets to photograph! Candy, cookies, cupcakes, pan dulce, pie, donuts, fruit, etc.  In addition, bring in any props you want to use with them (placemats, plates or bowls, cup of milk, fabric, utensils, wooden cutting boards or other surfaces, etc.).  Set up, style, light, and shoot!


Continue photo shoot.  Try new ideas!


More shooting if necessary.
