About This Class

This class is all about justifying the purchase of a fancy chocolate bar in the name of art!

Just kidding (kind of!)

We're going to be taking gorgeous, studio-quality low-light images with beautiful diffused window light. No studio experience necessary!

Here's what we'll cover:

  1. Identifying the best light in your space and the best times of day to utilize it
  2. Shaping the existing light for a dramatic, high contrast image
  3. Styling a scene with items around the house to tell a compelling story
  4. Reading imagery to understand and replicate lighting and angle styles
  5. Composition basics and tons of miscellaneous tips
  6. Quick technical review about White Balance and Metering
  7. Workflow with a DSLR and iPhone
  8. Editing iPhone images with VSCO app for Instagram

I can't wait to see your photos!

I love it
This is one of the most detailed and thorough classes on moody product photography. And I've seen this more than 3 times and have benefited from it each time. Quite a fun watch too!
Tabitha is great! She makes creating a light tunnel and shooting a dark, moody chocolate scene accesible to beginners. I'm excited to create my own light tunnel!

Hi! I'm Tabitha and I teach photography classes. I'm a lifestyle portrait photographer for a living and I make that living in the gorgeous state of Utah! I love plants and I knit and I had my appendix removed in 2014 and sometimes I worry that I might need it later to talk to aliens. Other than that I'm pretty normal.
