Join professional commercial/fine art photographer Thom Williams of Troy, NY.
We will discuss techniques, concepts, lighting and equipment involved in creating successful food images. Ideas will be given on how to create wonderful images with whatever equipment you have to work with. Tell a story with composition, backdrops/shooting surfaces and using props to complete your images and story. There will be demos to help students see the topics discussed in the real world.
Students should have their own camera for this class.
(Please note: This class is being offered in conjunction with other Art Centers in the state. Participants will be from around New York State and not limited to local LPCA students.)
About the Instructor: Thom Williams
Thom Williams is a photographic artist currently living in Troy, NY. Thom earned a B.F.A. from SUNY Oswego with studio concentrations in Graphic Design and Photography. He has taken photographs ranging from fashion editorials, portraits, architecture, athletic events and street photography. Whether a gesture, expression, or angle of architecture, Thom is inspired by capturing images not otherwise seen of ordinary moments that can have profound reflective meaning for the viewer. As an artist, he is interested in experimenting digitially with images and more recently in presenting images in a unique multidimensional way.
His fashion editorials have been published in Saratoga Living, The Muse and Tatoo Envy Magazine among others. Thom's work can be viewed on TM Williams Photography through Facebook or Instagram. Teaching at multiple art centers for the past 3 years in person and virtually beginning in 2020, he has found an avenue to share his passion and foster growth for others interested in photography.
