Great class to take if you're interested in food photography at any skill level. Highly recommend checking out this class, incredible tips on gear, lighting, ambience shots and everything in between. Definitely worth watching.
It is so practical and hands-on. I like how I get to see a photographer in action and the photos that he gets from the shots. It's awesome!
Great information! However, he skips over the actual camera settings, which is everything when taking these great photos. Also, the video shooting and editing is not the strongest. Dark in some spots, lots of camera shake, audio is all over the place, and why cut to the 2nd camera? There's no reason.
