Nicole Hill Gerulat attended the Brooks Institute of Photography and the French Culinary Institute, so it’s no wonder that she takes amazing food and product photos. (All the photos in this post are hers.) Her portraits and wedding shots are also really pretty. Take a look.
I’m always trying to improve our SSP product shots, so I jumped at the chance to take Nicole’s Photo 101 and Tabletop Photography class a several days ago at the Art Weekend. She did not disappoint me. Not that I am all of a sudden taking spectacular images…but she gave us a lot of tips and tricks that I never would have thought of on my own. She also did a great job of explaining how to find my way around my new DSLR*.
I highly recommend taking a class from her. And from what I’ve heard all the other classes at the Art Weekend were pretty great. I think I’ll branch out and take another kind of class next time. Maybe Illustrator. Or Scherenschnitte. Oh, and Nicole teaches classes in San Francisco, New York City, and online as well, so don’t think you have to live in Utah to take advantage of her expertise.
* A Canon Rebel. I love it! Kirk and I have been saving up for a while, and then my parents, Kirk’s parents, and my grandparents gave me some camera money for my birthday last month. I haven’t posted any images from it yet…but I will soon.
