Wonder Photo Shop NYC Photography Workshop Recap

A couple of weekends ago, Brandy and I hosted a fun (free!) photography workshop at the new Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop in NYC. The store is an eclectic, whimsical take on a modern day print shop. From photography inspiration books, to scrapbooking accouterments to cameras, lenses and printers, it’s got a really cool vibe and a great back area for the community to come together for some hands-on fun!

We had a good group of about 12 people come out to learn how to take professional style food photographs on their phones and instax cameras.

We broke the first half of the hour long workshop down into three sections which included:

Compositionmessy shots vs. the perfectly styled / macro vs. pulled back / telling a story with each picture, evoking a feeling and mood.

Lightingdark and moody vs. light and bright

Editing – utilizing VSCO and Instagram to achieve help “tell a story/set the mood” for your picture and learning the basics of each editing tool.

For the second half of the workshop, we played! With enough donuts, apples, pears, muffins, bagels and coffee to feed a small army, we challenged everyone to use what they had just learned and get creative with their own food photography. Some people used props the Wonder Photo Shop was nice enough to lend us, some immediately bolted to the front of the store for some natural light (yeah!) and got down on the (gorgeous) wood floors to play around for this shot (one of my favorites from the workshop):

There were some awesome shots all around and we had such a fun time with everyone who attended. If you’re in the NYC area, check out the Wonder Photo Shop’s event page for upcoming workshops!
