Food Photography + Styling Workshop

Join the talented ladies behind blogs Bread + Barrow and Betty Liu for an immersive 4-day food photography and styling retreat in gorgeous, iconic Martha’s Vineyard this May. 

Workshop attendees will spend four nights in a beautifully renovated 19th century Victorian beach house and dive into photography from the onset. There will be picnics by the beach, a visit to an oyster farm, lessons on how to shuck, and a chance to try your hand at quahogging. Participants will learn to tell the story of food - from the sea to our hands and onto the table. Then you'll indulge in some of the freshest seafood these waters have to offer and take beautiful, authentic photos for documentation.

Some of the topics that will be covered in the workshop are:
  • manipulating natural light, both indoors and outdoors
  • incorporating the human element
  • styling a recipe from start to finish
  • styling the environment to fit a vision
  • excursions such as oyster farming, quahogging, and a picnic on the beach
  • basics of internal camera settings and gear
  • discussions on blogging, social media, and your rights as a photographer
  • post-processing in Adobe Lightroom 6, and developing your personal style

There are only a few spots left. For more information, visit here.

A Guide to Spring Cleaning
A Guide to Spring Cleaning

March 23, 2017

Spring isn’t only a season of growth, it’s also a season of anticipation. It’s almost like a buffer zone between the long, dark, hostile winter and the bright, shining weather of the summer – at least that’s the story here in New England. The flowers start to bloom, birds are chirping, and thank goodness for clocks moving forward because this is about the time we start to beg  for more sunshine.

So, with nature slowly getting us ready for all those lazy beach days and trips to the Cape, it’s time to start thinking about one thing and one thing only...the annual ritual of spring cleaning.
