I didn't see a topic on this so please forgive me if I missed it. I am in awe of many of the photographs that several cookiers take of their cookies, Julia is one.
I want to learn how to take better pictures of my cookies but am stumped as to how to do so. Do I need to take a food styling/staging class? Do I need to take a food photography class? Etc? I have been online looking and there is just so much out there it's overwhelming. I'm not trying to spend a ton of money and spend tons of time in classes but I really want to enhance my cookies and any other products I take pictures of as it relates to my cookies.
I live in Laurel, MD and any input would be so great! I'm literally overwhelmed as to what to do? Do you all take your own pictures of do you hire someone? Oh and I need a photo editing software as well as a course on how to use it!!!! Arggghhhh! Help PLEASE!
