Class Recap: Cook.Bake.Shoot

Bloesem Class Recap | Cook.Bake.Shoot Food styling and photography

The weekend before the last saw baking and photography dynamite, Elodie Bellegarde, teaching our Cook.Bake.Shoot Bloesem class on food styling and photography and here’s a quick recap of how the class went!

Both classes on saturday and sunday began bright and early at 9.30 am and all the students were rearing to go, of course after they had their morning boost of coffee or tea. Elodie began with the basics and everything you need to know when getting into food styling and photography. Students picked up the tricks of the trade, simplest tools you never knew about that makes life a whole lot easier and pictures and food look way more beautiful.

Of course since it was a food styling and photography class, our catering had to look nothing less than amazing and our caterer, Siny, definitely rose to the occasion and did not disappoint. For a mid-class snack we all sipped on fruity smoothies and lunch was a beautiful platter that included quiche, beetroot and goat cheese as well as a tuna salad on crackers.

Well, we could not be spending the whole class eating, though all the class materials looked so yummy it was hard to resist. After Elodie explained the basics, it was time for the students to try their hands at food styling and photography and we have to say everyone did so well! The pictures that came out were wayyy beyond expectation. If you are interested, have a look at the hashtag #bloesemclass on instagram, you can find some of our student’s amazing works there.

Other than a goodybag, students left with a booklet with all the important details they picked up during class. Very handy and great for class revision and post class practices.

One thing we noticed is that props were very important in achieving a certain mood and look to the pictures and Elodie was well equipped with a wide selection to choose from, all from her own collection. Woah!

Of course we could not let our new friends leave without getting connected on instagram. Overall, it was a great weekend, I mean how could it have not been with all that good food. We definitely picked up a few things from Elodie and can’t wait to give our new skills a go. Here’s a pre-apology to friends and family who are going to have to wait while we take pictures of the food before we can actually eat it.

If you think the class looks fun, maybe you can join us at one of our up coming classes! Have a look at what’s coming up here.

    sinds ik in januari jl een paar uur door Singapore heb gelopen (ik was op doorreis van HCM city naar Amsterdam) ben ik jaloers op iedereen die in Singapore woont en dan ook nog van die leuke workshops! Ik droom al stiekem van een rondreis in Maleisië met als start- en eindpunt Singapore, misschien in combi met een leuke workshop!
