Join popular lifestyle photographer Sean Dalton as he shows you how to capture visual stories with dark and moody food photography — the style that helped Sean establish himself as a photography influencer.

Dark & moody food photography is what Sean does. If you've seen his Instagram, you'd know that. But there is something deeper to these photos that you might not notice at first glance. Each photo tells it's own unique story, a story about a place, a person, or a culture. Together, they comprise a collection of works that aim to elicit emotions within their viewer. This aspect of emotional storytelling is central to any form of photography, and is one of the most crucial aspects to capturing powerful food photos.

In this 60 minute course, Sean breaks down his entire visual storytelling process, providing practical insight on how he achieves his unique food photography style. Some of the things you can expect from this course are:

  • How to find perfect lighting
  • How to style your photos to enhance the story
  • Three simple compositions to follow
  • Essential gear and smartphone photography
  • Editing on computer and smartphone

Whether you’re someone that photographs their food with a smartphone, an amateur food photographer with a passion to improve, or professional food photographer, this class mixes technical information with foundational photography skills that appeal to everyone. See the inner workings of a professional food and lifestyle photographer, and take your visual storytelling skills to the next level.
