    Very Easy to follow and Practical


    I’ve been taking food photos before now, but Phil opened my eyes to many things I had always wondered about in food photography. The fact that all the props used in this can be found around the house makes it all the more interesting.
    This is a well demonstrated course and a beautiful beginners’ guide to food photography.
