When the chef Rachael Nimenko first approached me about a 5 Day Studio Photography Course, at my Siem Reap Studio, concentrating on Food Photography for her upcoming book she didn’t even own a camera. I gave her my recommendations of the camera and lighting equipment she needed and where buy them. She wanted to use the least equipment needed to still be able to produce beautiful images. We used one speed-light and reflectors, plus natural light.
The lesson went like this:
Day 01, lesson 1 – actually how to take the lens cap off, change lenses and onwards.
Until Day 05 I hardly gave instruction but acted as her assistant, with the odd extra tip. Please see the attached images as I am very proud of her progress and wish her all the very best with her upcoming book, which I know will now look great!
Congratulations Rachael, it was a delight teaching you.
