Working with meat always made me nervous because it is not easy to get the appealing image from your meat everytime. There are certain techniques to be applied by the food stylist and photographer to get the best results. At this meat 'styling & photography techniques' workshop, I have met two very talented and experienced ladies, Heidi Robb and Clarissa Westmeyer, who are very good at their proffessions. They showed us how to work through multiple stages of meat styling, lighting and photography from raw to cooked, and how to best preserve its integrity for time spent on set. It is so rewarding to see the harmony between them while they were working on set. First and foremost I really appreciate generousity of sharing their knowledge and experience with us.
