Alejandro Guerani, the Photographer who makes mouths water and keep eyes wide open.

I am honored that Photographer Alessandro Guerani accepted to teach a Food Photography Workshop organized by Business Projects – Study Abroad Opportunities. From my point of view, Alessandro’s photographs are magnificent pieces of art. His sense of style, talent and understanding of the essence of people and things allow him to produce extraordinary images that  are memorable in our minds.

About Alessandro Guerani: “He was born in 1969 in Bologna, Italy, where he still lives. He started using cameras at the age of twenty as a complement to his studies about medieval and Renaissance arts and history. His passion for the tastes and flavors of the traditional Italian cuisine, together with a period of assistantship in a professional studio, brought him to specialize in food and still life photography. His style is defined by the fresh and creative use of lighting, the careful choice of colors and contrast and the attention to the detail, which, together with a competent use of digital post processing techniques, create imagery with a very personal character. When the need arises he still uses traditional film, in medium or large format, especially when shooting lifestyle and street photography.” (http://www.foodografia.com/).

The one week workshop which will take  place in Siena, Italy from October 11th through October 16th, will be an exceptional opportunity for participants to learn about the skills and abilities of food photography from a professional who has been referred to by Savouring Switzerland as “a master of lighting, and is meticulous about every visual detail…”

I guarantee nothing less than an enriching and successful experience to all participants – he will share his expertise and talent to teach them how to produce beautiful images that make mouths water, open appetite and make you keep your eyes wide open! On the other hand, this will be a fantastic occasion for participants from Argentina, Spain, Venezuela, Italy and the USA to interact and connect.

I am very glad by the fact that Barbara will be part of the coming up Digital Food Photography Workshop that Business Projects – Study Abroad Projects has organized and which will take place in Siena, Italy from October 11th through October 16th. While Photographer Alessandro Guerani will teach food photography at different levels and cover a variety of topics (exposure, lighting, food and prop styling, different composition techniques, lighting set-ups for studio and location shooting, camera and lighting equipment and post-production skills), Barbara will contribute to the understanding of how to style food and prepare a photo shoot. Participants will have the opportunity to see unstyled and styled food and comprehend the impact of an artfully-styled plate.
