Mobile Food Photography


Let's face it, nobody wants to lug around a heavy camera (and a whole bunch of lenses) all day in order to be able to indulge in great food photography. The good news is that smartphone cameras today can now take stunning pictures, and you don't need a great deal of technical knowledge to pull it off.

Drawing from real-world scenarios, this class will show you exactly what to do in specific situations where you need to take photos of food, including figuring out ideal indoor shooting locations, post-processing images using both free and paid mobile apps, and employing little-known hacks to drastically improve image quality.
