Rick walks us through his lighting thoughts while actually doing a shot. You can hear him discussing the thought process he uses, and you will learn a lot of great little lighting tips and tricks to make your next photograph even better.
I recommend signing up for Rick’s email updates if you are at all interested in real professional info and shoots – including some incredible behind the scenes at his food shoots.
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.
Also known as Don Giannatti, photography has been the focus of my life for most of my adult years. I have written three books for Amherst Media (available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble: keyword 'don giannatti'. Lighting Essentials is my flagship blog and ezine with a slightly different slant than most photography related blogs. If you are interested in becoming a better photographer, check out www.project52.org. Thanks for visiting.
Glad you dropped by. This is my love and my muse. We talk about photography here, as well as the folks who make images. I am very focused on commercial and fine art photography, and we don't really spend all that much time on weddings and such. I have written 5 books - two I give away here, and two are for sale at Amazon, and the 5th one is being edited and designed right now!
