We start in style this year! /pa name="more"/a pTogether with my colleague a href="http://www.cooksister.com/"Jeanne Horak-Druiff,/a who will co-instruct with me and the lovely a href="http://monica-meets.com/"Monika Kogler /awho will be our host, I am very excited to have a fantastic and very competent team for this workshop. br /The three of us have put together an exceptional programme for our participants and we will have the opportunity to work and play in the heart of this beautiful city. /ppFor the first day we will house ourselves in a fantastic a href="http://www.diepause.at/kochstudio/"studio and kitchen/a where we will not only work on the theory of food photography, hands-on exercises and assignments, but Monika will also be spoiling us with typical homemade Viennese dishes. The studio with it's many large windows and plenty of natural light provides the ideal venue for our lessons and the state of the art equipped kitchen allows us to enjoy convivial meals together. br /Day two will be an active one as we take you to the famous emNaschmarkt /emand the vintage market for your photography assignments, where you will have the opportunity to take impressive market shots and also buy some amazing vintage props ;) To round off the day, a coffee house visit in a more modern locality at the emNaschmarkt /emwill offer another photo opportunity for our restaurant photo shoot. /ppimg alt="Vienna 2011 (0028) by Meeta K.

We hope to provide you with challenging exercises covering the basic and advanced food styling and photography techniques as well as hands-on intensive assignments, individual guidance and critique from the instructors. There will be sessions on natural lighting, detailed presentations on styling, creating moods, props, post-processing and saving your images and we will focus on low-light photography, giving you tips and ideas of how to master your camera in low-light situations./ppimg alt="Vienna 2011 (0029) by Meeta K.
