About This Class

Choose two styles—airy, dramatic, bright, in-motion, lifestyle—and create two sets of photos. Each set should consist of three photos and convey a clear style. Share both sets to inspire, learn, and spark discussion with fellow students.

Capture all the stylized scenes you see in blogs, cookbooks, and magazines with food photographer Leela Cyd's fun, 30-minute guide to shooting food in 5 essential styles. This class dives deep into execution, empowering aspiring photographers and foodies with practical advice to maximize camera technique and up the artistry, mood, and tone of every moment. Whether you choose to extend your project into a full narrative or continue to experiment with single images, you'll love how this quick half hour breaks open a world of photographic possibilities.
