6. Testimonials from awesome students

“When I started taking classes with Giulia, I could hardly handle a DSLR camera. She taught me the staples of food photography and gave me the tools to keep practising on my own. She has always been supportive and encouraging, besides teaching me a lot of food styling tricks. I definitely recommend Giulia to anyone who wants to approach food photography in a more competent way.”
Valeria – food blogger and baking rockstar thesweetbit.com

I met Giulia a few years ago when I was at the beginning of my food blog project.  With her I started an extraordinary journey through the food photography world, focusing on several topics: from composition to natural and artificial light studies.  Through Giulia, I’ve learned how the different photography moods, high key and low key, impact the final result of a picture.  She taught me how to set up a photoshoot, select props and take shots in tethering mode. Moreover, we played around with post-production and editing through lightroom and photoshop. She is a professional, skilled and qualified photographer but also an engaging and exciting person.”
