Exploring street cooking and craftsmanship | Christmas market walk with Esther Ling (London)
NAC, 41 N Audley St, Mayfair, London W1K 6ZP
Thursday 28th November, 4:00pm – 8:00pm
Christmas markets are home to a whole host of activity, from craftsman selling their wears, to the chefs behind smoky stands cooking German sausages and mulling wine. Esther Ling will take you through the Winter Wonderland market and show you how to get the best shots - and you can pick up some of the stunning dishes along the way.
Esther will give you her tips and tricks to get the best from the market environment and how to navigate the stalls and people. With her years of professional experience, she will show you when that special moment happens and where to be when it does.
Esther is a self-taught professional photographer. She specializes in Food Photography but also covers weddings & social location portraits. She believes in simplicity and not overcomplicating the way you shoot. Where possible, Esther works with natural light and wide, open apertures; a definite lover of a shallow depth of field.
Esther will guide you through the step-by-step process of photographing stunning dishes. This workshop will take place using background and natural light to help you to perfect your craft even when you are limited on where you can capture the images. From the presentation to the final image, Esther and Panasonic will be on-hand to give you tips and tricks and help you get some stunning shots for your portfolio.
