"Play With Your Food" Photo Workshop Coming to Fido

Posted By on Tue, Jun 14, 2011 at 5:41 AM

It's time for a multiple exposure at Fido in Hillsboro Village as food photographer Kyle Dreier and food stylist Teresa Blackburn present another class in the Shoot, Eat, Learn workshop series. Earlier this year, Dreier scheduled a "Delicious Lighting" class and another presentation titled "My Stupid Camera." From 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 30, at Fido, you are encouraged to "Play With Your Food" as Dreier and Blackburn teach you some of the tricks of the trade — from faking ice cream, sweating beer bottles to building a salad with a mashed potato foundation.

Dreier and Blackburn play with food for a living as they collaborate to create their delectable food porn images. Blackburn’s experience covers myriad food outlets from styling for TV shows to developing recipes for cookbooks, while Dreier’s career covers still photography for a variety of food clientele. For examples of their work, visit Dreier's site and Blackburn's Food on Fifth blog.

Best of all, participants not only learn practical tips for creating better food photos but also get treated to amazing food provided by Fido Chef John Stephenson. “Fido provides a great dinner while Teresa and I will provide insight to what it means to do food styling for food photography,” says Dreier.

Do food stylists really use motor oil instead of syrup on photo shoots? You'll have to show up and ask them yourselves. Bring your camera too, so you can put your new knowledge into practice.

The cost of the session is $45 (space limited). Register at ShootEatLearn.com
