About the workshop
Outside it’s dark, there's no daylight but your food shot needs a crispy sunlight? Shooting in a restaurant, kitchen, or your wardrobe and there is no window? It’s time to take out your own sun, to take out your own blue sky.
In this workshop, we will learn about what sunlight and daylight means to foodshots, and how to build several light settings to imitate natural light. We will also learn about how important light temperature is for food, and how to choose the right light former, among many other things.
Jan C. Brettschneider has been a photographer for more than 25 years, and has been shooting food for the last 20 years. He shoots everywhere, on location, in restaurants, in the kitchen of hotels, with great chefs all over the world, and in his own studio in Hamburg. He shoots for editorials, advertising, and books. He likes to work with the light, and believes that "a good light can push a food setting, but a poor light can ruin everything".
