A Food Photography Workshop with Alain Proust at Auslese

We’re surrounded by imagery and especially that of food, but what makes really good photography? What distinguishes an average food photo from a mouthwatering, jawdropping one?

While there are plenty of technical skills one can employ, the essence lies in understanding and learning to use light. Regardless of the camera, learn how to manage light to bring out the textures and nuances of your subject.

Internationally renowned photographer, Alain Proust, has worked across a variety of genres, but his first love is food and wine photography. He has collaborated closely with Harald for many years both on our own photography and on projects such as the Wine Visionaries book.

Don’t miss this golden opportunity to learn from Alain’s mastery and wealth of experience.

No special skills or equipment are needed, but bring along your camera of choice, note paper, a pen and a photo of yours (on a memory stick) that you’d like feedback on.

This introductory workshop will cover: 

  • general aspects of food photography
  • how to manage light
  • how to mimic natural light
  • manual camera settings
  • a demonstration
  • feedback on participants’ photos
  • informal chat with a glass of excellent wine and light snacks from Harald’s kitchen after
