Jenn Davis is a food photographer and blogger from Nashville, TN. She loves creating imagery that transports the viewer into the scene. When photographing food, she places an emphasis on details of lighting, mood, texture, and color. Her goal is to have the viewer connect emotionally with her photos.
Creatively, Jenn wants the freedom to manipulate light from bright to soft or crisp to moody at any time. Replicating the look and feel of natural light using artificial light has become a huge passion project. She is someone who started shooting food at only the perfect time of day in the doorway of her laundry room; to shooting all types of light at anytime of day anywhere.
Learning to use artificial light in her photography has improved not only her images, but her workflow and increased her opportunities for jobs.
Shelly Waldman is a commercial and editorial photographer based in the San Francisco bay area. Her works spans food, product, and people. She loves being able to express her creativity through images. Her work has a approachable and friendly feel which is crafted through her lighting and composition choices.
She finds that being able to manipulate artificial light in any situation has allowed her opportunities to work on location with no fear of, "What if there is no natural light?" Her first big commercial gig was shooting a crawfish broil for Millers/Coors. It was to feel like a summer afternoon. Shooting in San Francisco meant being prepared for the fog to roll in and block out the sun. So her knowledge of lighting and being able to replicate daylight using strobes was a huge asset and continues to be.
Learning to use artificial light in our photography has improved not only our images, but our workflows and increased our opportunities for jobs.
We want you, our students to have the same confidence in using artificial light as the main light source for your photography, so that time of day, and location are no longer obstacles allowing for you create the scene as you imagine it.
