I was happy recently to see an article written by a former student of Photo Styling Workshops. Winnie P. Ma is a Los Angeles-based photographer who has taken both an online class and a weekend workshop with Lisa Golden Schroeder, Greg Bertolini, and me. I've been following her career on Facebook (she's often posting about some cool food she's been shooting) but was especially delighted - and proud - when she posted this article from Canon PhotoYou magazine (Summer 2011 edition).
Winnie says: This year I was asked by Canon PhotoYou Magazine to write an article about being a Food Photographer entitled "A Day in the Life of a Food Photographer." It's my take on what I've learned so far being a professional Food Photographer.
She writes with knowledge of the importance of preproduction, a strong team, and communication with the client. The article continues with a walk through a food shoot and a page of tips for photographers. Please check it out. Thanks, Winnie for sharing your experience and knowledge!
