Many bloggers are doing the photography for their own cookbooks now, as well as for others, and often these gigs are offered to bloggers without formal commercial photography experience. There are important ways in which shooting photos for a cookbook differ from shooting photos for a blog. Alice Currah, Aran Goyoaga and Michael Natkin will show you what’s involved in shooting the kind of cookbook photography that editors want, from food styling to photo quality. They’ll guide you through creating a realistic workflow to create great food images in real home kitchens.
