About This Class

Up your latte art game with this coffee shop photo class! Instagram star and photographer Adam Goldberg (@alifewortheating) is sharing his secrets so you can master iPhone food photography for Instagram and beyond.

In this 30-minute class, travel with Adam as he captures his morning routine at two of his favorite Brooklyn cafes: Parlor Coffee Roastery and Sweetleaf. He reveals how to shoot the perfect latte and croissant, edit in apps like Snapseed and VSCO Cam, and transform a humble iPhone shot into a spectacular image.

Adam is known for shooting everyday food with beauty, symmetry, and a clean aesthetic. This class shows the intention and thoughtfulness behind each of those images so that you can bring that same beauty into your own lifestyle and food photography.

By the end of the class, you’ll have the skills to capture your morning breakfast routine — or any light snack you take throughout the day — in a way that’s real, inspired, and perfect for Instagram.
