Big shout out to Rick for doing this for you Lighting Essentials folks. And a big shout out to Charles Tibbs for handling some video duties as well. Appreciated, guys.

Rick will be doing a workshop for those interested in professional food photography.¬†Here’s the link.¬†This workshop will include a food stylist to show you all the tricks and answer the questions you may have about shooting food. Rick is a wonderful teacher – as you can see from the video – so this workshop comes highly recommended by me.

  1. Awesome watch. Learned some cool little tricks. Thanks to all involved for this wonderful short take on creating images with light instead of the other way around,

  2. Excellent – thank you. My own light modifiers are a lot like Rick’s – lots of cardboard and foamcore.
