Last week we returned from teaching the Food and Light Food Photography workshop with our friends Jen Yu and Matt Wright. This is the second year this amazing Boulder event took place and it couldn’t have been done without the vision, hard work and dedication of founder Jen Yu.
This years group was wonderful and spending 2 magnificent days with them all in Boulder Colorado was like no other workshop we’ve taught at. The energy, spiritual unity and desire to learn and share was off the hook. Everyone brought something to the table and learning together as a community is why we love doing what we do.
This year, Todd covered artificial lighting with speedlights and Diane taught Food styling with a live demo and taught shooting in restaurants (on location situations). It was a blast and we loved sharing everything we could.
But we also learned so much from this workshop from the attendees. So many new friends we met here shared their personal stories with us, their challenges and triumphs. This workshop wasn’t just about food photography, it was about life, friendships and pursuing our dreams. Everyone had a special story to share and a dream to pursue. It was so humbling to be a part of this amazing gathering and we all walked out of there as better photographers and most importantly, as better people.
Thank you Jen Yu , Matt Wright, Jeremy, Jason and the whole group for making us more complete in those 2 days.
