Steps to great food photography that you'll learn in this course:

  2. Prepare and style your food and setting.
  3. Light your food with inexpensive tools like a white sheet and $1 poster board. 
  4. Choose the best camera and settings.

Great for beginners. He goes thru all of the basics of food photography to get you started. Really nice, informative, conversational style.
verrrrrrrrrrrrrry useful! basic stuff, no fancy gear, fantastic course.
