Manual – The Button I Now Know How To Use On My Camera.

After 3 years of having a fancy camera, I have finally learnt how to use it for food photography. I have enrolled for evening classes a couple of times and they have never happened as there weren’t enough people. When I saw the very fancy Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand had a 2-day weekend class I decided to jump in and get it done!

The weekend was fantastic, it was spent in their space in Cuba Street, Wellington. I loved it. The first day we talked about the food photography and how to use the camera. The Sunday we took photographs of actual food cooked by some of the Le Cordon Bleu students, photographed them while they cooked and ate their food.

It isn’t easy to learn as an adult and I am a long time out of school. I am no expert (yet) but I plan to be. I would recommend this class, it is by no means cheap but is very informative and a great way to learn.

Here are a few of my favourite photographs. They are not perfect, I love them and I am proud of my progress. My next step is to take the camera out of the house and to buy Photoshop.
