Food Styling Workshop Review

Thanks to everyone who came out for our very first workshop focusing on Food Styling. And especially thank you to the talented Teresa Blackburn for donating her time and sharing her knowledge with us.

I think we all walked away feeling incredibly inspired, with a few new tricks and strategies to apply to our next photoshoot.

For those who may not have been able to attend, here is a visual overview of the workshop, what we covered, and the process and final photographs that we took along the way.

Being that many attendees brought along some delicious treats and we had some extra time at the end, we used some of the items in what I’ll call “speed-styling sessions”. The results are truly beautiful.

    Just want to thank everyone who came to the Food Styling Workshop on Saturday. I had such as good time. It was just the best to finally meet and greet some of the best of Nashville’s Food Bloggers. Incredible photos Lindsay.

    This was an awesome Food Styling workshop and I was thrilled to attend! I still have readers of my blog asking about “styling secrets” that I learned from this workshop!
