Take your food photography to the next level with this exclusive workshop at Local Republic in Lawrenceville. 
Join Amanda on site, as the chefs and staff of Local Republic will provide beautiful dishes and drinks to photograph in the restaurant setting. 

Photography topics we will be covering throughout the class :

  • Composition, arrangement and filling the frame

  • Exploration of light : window lighting, back lighting, using unique ambient lights sources 

  • Accessorizing and styling your shot. Using easy to find and available pieces to make your photos pop! 

  • Techy talk: Exposure, focusing, lens choice and camera settings

  • Exploring the best spots of the restaurant to photograph

  • Highlighting chef's creations

  • Tips for getting the best shot on your camera phone



Local republic was born because we craved something different. Something more. Something better than the ubiquitous suburban fast food and me-too chain options. We were looking for a come-as-you-are kind of a place that served hard-to-find craft beer, great wines, and cocktails. A place that served only the freshest regionally and locally sourced ingredients. A place with no freezers and no decaf coffee. So, we built it and we call it Local Republic.


Recommended Prerequisites: PHOTO 1

Students will receive more information a few days of registering for the workshop.
