Blogger Sarah Manning of Tea & Happiness writes about her wonderful experience on our Introduction to Food Photography course with Joan Ransley.
"This time last week I had spent the day feeding my creative habit, combining two of my passions; food & photography. I am lucky enough to have a good friend who is studying at The School of Artisan Food and she invited me along to one of their short courses to indulge my photographic creativity. As you may have noticed from my blog I love taking pictures of food but I am the first to admit that they don’t always turn out as I envisage. Having taken general photography courses to familiarise myself with my DSLR I felt it was about time I sought some professional guidance on this area of photography which is fast becoming my passion. The School offers a one day introduction to food photography run by the very talented Joan Ransley.
Since booking the course I started following Joan on social media and her website. I felt an instant connection to her style; simple stunning food on rustic backgrounds. Each shot has a natural feel that makes you want to reach out and touch it, the textures and colours bringing the image to life. Everything looks so fresh and delicious I warn you not to peruse her website on an empty stomach!! In awe of her work and a hunger (not just metaphorically speaking) to produce images even half as good as hers I couldn’t wait to learn from a pro.
