Get Ready… 30Day Course Starts Monday

Monday is the big day.

We start the 30 days to Better Food Photos course on Monday. You will receive your first lesson.

Every day, I will send you an email sharing the lesson details. Please take one small action to ensure you don't miss any lessons.

Here's today's small action requested - please add to your email contacts. This way you will be sure that lesson is always delivered to you.

Let's talk about some more details:

Goal of this course... in one line

My goal with this course is to drive you to take action. - Neel

I hope your goal too is to take action.

This course is designed to give you short lessons, sometimes very short, and encourage you to act on it. Photography isn't learned by reading books. You need to pick up the camera and take action.

Do your best. But don't make that an excuse to not take action. Striving to be perfect is a good thing, but don't let that from stopping you from acting on the lessons.

On our food photography blog, we've written in detail about lot of topics. This course is not designed to repeat all of that. However, from time to time, I'll link the articles that give more details on a topic.

But again, please take action. I hope you are seeing a theme here. Act on the information.

What's New This Year...

This year we are changing couple of things in the way we organize the photo uploads and discussions. Last year we used Google Plus and comments on the page. Some also posted on LFP Facebook page.

Continue reading to learn how we are changing that this year.

Discussions and Photo Uploads

This website is going to be the main website for the course. All content will be posted here and will be sent to you in individual emails.

This year, we will asking you to post the assignment images in the comments section of the lesson. Discussions and Q&A also will have the same place - lessons page.

The commenting system we'll be using for this program is Disqus. If you haven't heard about it, don't worry. It is very easy to use and also let's you to upload images, reply in threaded conversations.

If you've never tried it before, try it out by leaving a comment.

        The page you are looking for no longer exists. Perhaps you can return back to the site’shomepage and see if you can find what you are looking for. Or, you can try finding it with the information below.

    Just getting around to completing Lesson #1: These are my choices for this assignment:
    1. Matt Armendariz I feel refreshed by looking at this photo with the different colors, I like the angle at almost eye level.

    2. Penny de Los Santos I felt a sense of familiarity, rushed by looking at the serving spoon with a drop of melted ice cream and the crumbs around the cups.

  • Looking forward to this course very much! Thanks!
