New Course: Artificial Lighting for Food Photography

For as long as I’ve been taking pictures of food, I’ve believed that beautiful food photography requires natural light.

But here’s the question – does it really?

What I’m finding is that even as a full-time blogger who has access to natural light all day long, the quality of natural light is always unpredictable. We live in Minnesota (don’t even get me started on the whys), and the natural light in the winter months is… well, I’m looking out the window right now and everything is just sort of a murky grey.

Over the last few years I’ve felt like there had to be a better way than waiting around all day for those three minutes of perfect natural light.

And I have good news – there is a better way!
